Lord, who fulfillest thus anew

Representative Text

Lord, who fulfillest thus anew
Thine own blest dying prayer,
That they who know not what they do,
May in thy ransom share:

When foes thy Church's power defy,
Or slight thy sacred word,
Or thee, true God and Man, deny,
Grant them conversion, Lord.

Grant that the light may round them shine;
That, set from error free,
They in thy word the truth divine,
Thee in thy Church may see;

251
That so, when our brief time is done,
We may with them adore
The Father, and coequal Son,
And Spirit evermore.

Amen.
