Jesus, Thy name hath pow­er to bless
Our trou­bled souls in all dis­tress.
On us, dear Lord, be­stow Thy grace,
And guide us safe­ly all our days.

The on­ly Son of God Thou art,
Forgive our sins and cleanse our heart;
Behold and help us in our need,
Thou who art God and man in­deed.

In Thee is all our right­eous­ness,
In Thee all peace and bless­ed­ness.
Who trusteth in Thy ho­ly name
Shall be re­deemed from sin and shame.

We praise Thee for Thy liv­ing Word,
And for Thy sac­ra­ments, O Lord.
Grant us Thy peace in all our strife,
And af­ter death eter­nal life.
