Representative Text

1 All praise to Thee, our Saviour good,
Who shedst for us Thy precious blood.
From Satan's might and wicked wiles
Thou hast us saved, O Jesus Christ.

2 We pray, true God and man, to Thee,
Us from the bonds of sin set free,
And comfort us, increase our faith,
And save us from eternal death.

3 Keep us from sin, from grief and shame,
And help us by Thy mighty Name
To bear our cross without complaint,
And strengthen us when weak and faint.

4 O Jesus Christ, our Brother dear,
Thou ever wilt be with us here.
Remain with us, in peace, in strife,
And grant us everlasting life.
