Representative Text

1 We praise Thy grace, O Saviour,
That beareth with us long,
And ever out of weakness
Thy servants maketh strong.

2 The saint, who left his comrades,
And turned back from the fight,
Behold at last victorious
In Thy prevailing might!

3 From Thee, Lord, came the courage
Once more to front the host:
Thy strength, most mighty Savior,
In weakness shineth most.

4 Thy love Saint Mark hath numbered
Among the bless├Ęd four,
And all the world rejoiceth
To learn his Gospel-lore.

5 O Lord, our human weakness
With pitying eye behold;
Uplift the fainting spirit,
And make the coward bold.

6 O Jesu, glorious Victor
O'er all the hosts of sin,
In us Thy strength make perfect,
In us the victory win.

Amen.
