83. O Saving Victim, Opening Wide

1 O saving Victim, opening wide
the gate of heaven to us below,
our foes press on from every side:
thine aid supply, thy strength bestow.

2 All praise and thanks to thee ascend
for evermore, blest One-in-Three;
O grant us life that shall not end
in our true native land with thee.
