O God of life, whose power benign
Doth o’er the world in mercy shine,
Accept our praise, for we are Thine.

O Father, all-creating Lord,
Be Thou by every tongue implored,
Be Thou by every heart adored.

O Son of God, for sinners slain,
We worship Thee, whose dying pain
For us did endless life regain.

O Holy Ghost, whose guardian care
Doth for us heavenly joys prepare
May we in Thy communion share.

Father, protect us here below;
Jesus, Thy mercy may we know;
O Holy Ghost, Thy power bestow.

O holy, blessèd Trinity,
With faith we sinners bow to Thee,
In Heaven and earth exalted be.
