1 Lord God, to us fore'er secure
The catechism's instruction pure,
By Luther, servant Thine, set forth
To plant in youth Thy saving word.
2 That we may learn Thy holy will,
Bewail our sins and faults, and still
Believe in Thee and in Thy son,
Enlightened by Thy Spirit's boon.
3 That we to Thee, our Father, call
Who canst and wilt bring help to all,
That, children Thine in Baptism made,
We always Christian lives may lead.
4 That if we fall, we rise again,
And in true faith confess our sin,
And comfort by Thy Supper gain.
Grant us a happy end. Amen.
