1God the Father, throned on high,
Who didst send Thy Son to die
For our sin and misery,
Hear us, Holy Father.
2God the Son, Who wert indeed
Born at length the woman’s seed,
Thou Who hast Thy servants freed,
Hear us, Holy Jesus.
3God the Spirit, ever nigh,
Thou Who hear’st the contrite cry,
Ever plead for us on high,
Hear us, Holy Spirit.
4For Thy Church we humbly pray,
In her warfare day by day,
Be Thou still her strength and stay,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
5Purge her from all spot and stain,
May she victory attain,
Lift her to Thy side to reign,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
6May Thy flock be ever fed
With the true and living bread;
Let not error lift its head,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
7Give us grace and zeal aflame
For the glory of Thy name,
For the empire Thou dost claim,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
8Into fields to harvest white,
Send forth those who in Thy might
Shall restore lost souls to light,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
9Strengthen them in hours of need,
Keep them pure in word and deed,
Give them grace, we humbly plead,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
10May the haunts of sin and shame,
Through the glory of Thy Name,
Dying souls no longer claim,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
11Let the sinful souls that stray
On the broad and narrow way,
Turn to Thee while yet they may,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
12May the Gospel news be borne
Where in misery forlorn
Still the little children mourn,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
13Not for earthly gifts we plead,
But for those we intercede
Who Thy loving mercy need,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
14By the love that did not scorn
Scourge and bitter crown of thorn,
Nor cruel death for sinners borne,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
15By the blood for us outpoured,
Pledge of Paradise restored,
Jesu, by Thy saints adored,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
16While in earthly courts we pray,
Till the shadows flee away,
Till there dawn the endless day,
We beseech Thee, hear us. Amen.
17May the souls in Satan’s thrall,
Hear from far Thy joyous call,
At Thy feet in worship fall,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
18Where false gods have held their sway
Shed abroad the Gospel ray,
Till there break the perfect day,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
19Gather from earth’s farthest shore
Thine elect, to stray no more,
But to worship and adore,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
1 Peter5:10But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
