73. O Faithful God, Thanks Be To Thee

1 O faithful God, thanks be to Thee,
That Thou forgiv'st iniquity
And helpest me in sin's distress,
And dost my soul and body bless.

2 By servant Thine Thou say'st to me:
My child, thy sin's forgiven thee!
Depart in peace, and sin no more
And e'er my pard'ning grace adore.

3 We bless The wondrous grace, O Lord,
Who pardon grantest through Thy Word;
We now enjoy the heav'nly good
Through Jesus' holy, precious blood.

4 Now, Lord, us all Thy Spirit give,
Help us in holiness to live;
Preserve to us, till life is spent,
Thy Holy Word and Sacrament.
