139. O God The Father, Draw Thou Nigh

1 O God the Father, draw Thou nigh
And leave us sinners not to die;
Our many sins, O Lord, forgive,
Preserve our faith and let us live;
Deliver us from Satan's arts,
And make us thine with all our hearts:
Amen, Amen, so shall it be,
And hallelujahs rise to Thee.

2 O God the Son, do Thou draw nigh
And leave us sinners not to die;
Our many sins, O Lord, forgive,
Preserve our faith and let us live;
Deliver us from Satan's arts,
And make us Thine with all our hearts:
Amen, Amen, so shall it be,
And hallelujahs rise to Thee.

3 O God the Spirit, draw Thou nigh
And leave us sinners not to die;
Our many sins, O Lord, forgive,
Preserve our faith and let us live;
Deliver us from Satan's arts,
And make us Thine with all our hearts:
Amen, Amen, so shall it be,
And hallelujahs rise to Thee.

Amen.
