Representative Text

1 Jesus, Thy name hath pow’r to bless
Our troubled souls in all distress.
On us, dear Lord, bestow Thy grace,
And guide us safely all our days.

2 The only Son of God Thou art,
Forgive our sins and cleanse our heart;
Behold and help us in our need,
Thou who art God and Man indeed.

3 In Thee is all our righteousness,
In Thee all peace and blessedness.
Who trusteth in Thy holy Name
Shall be redeemed from sin and shame.

4 We praise Thee for Thy living Word,
And for Thy sacraments, O Lord.
Grant us Thy peace in all our strife,
And after death eternal life.

Amen.
