Representative Text

1 Lord God, our Father, Thou our chiefest stay,
Thou art our souls' delight for aye!
O hearken to our humble prayer:
Forgive our sins and us in mercy spare!
Have mercy on us, O Lord!

2 Lord Jesus Christ, God's Son, true light and way,
Shepherd of souls, to Thee we pray:
Thou wast for our salvation slain
Let not Thy death and sufferings be in vain!
Have mercy on us, O Lord!

3 Lord God, the Holy Ghost, Thee we implore
Be with us now and evermore!
Lead us to God, His grace to win,
And leave us not to perish in our sin!
Have mercy on us, O Lord!
