1 Almighty God, eternal Lord,
Grant us Thy grace through Thy dear Word,
To praise Thee and to bear in mind
That Thou art ever good and kind.

2 Lord Jesus Christ, incarnate Word,
Thy Name be evermore adored,
For all Thine anguish, death, and pain
Whereby salvation we obtain.

3 O Holy Spirit, grant us grace,
And guide us in Thy righteous ways,
That we may with the heavenly host
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Amen.
