Let us look today at the Collect for Friday of the 1st Week of Advent.
This prayer was in the 1962 Missale Romanum and is taken from the ancient Gregorian Sacramentary.
Excita, quaesumus, Domine, potentiam tuam, et veni,
ut, ab imminentibus peccatorum nostrorum periculis,
te mereamur protegente eripi,
te liberante salvari.
A REALLY LITERAL VERSION:
Rouse up Your might, we beseech You, O Lord, and come,
that, as You are protecting us, we may merit to be snatched away
from the menacing dangers of our sins
and, as You are freeing us, be saved.
A PROPOSED VERSION:
Stir up your power, we pray, O Lord, and come,
that with you to protect us
we may find rescue
from the looming dangers of our sins,
and with you to set us free,
be found worthy of salvation.
I normally object to that whole "with" rendering of ablative absolutes.
