Who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.@2 Thessalonians 3:3

Edward W. Kellogg, 1858 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528)

Savior, listen to our prayer,
Poor and sinful though we are;
Guilt confessing, give Thy blessing,
Grant Thy loving care.

Refrain

O God our Father, Christ our king,
Now to Thee our hearts we bring;
Keep them ever, blessèd Savior,
Till in Heav’n we sing.

Strength is Thine; we often stray
From the pure and holy way;
While Thou guide us, walk beside us,
Nearer every day!

Refrain

Then may we, when life is o’er,
Stand with Thee on yonder shore;
Freed from sinning, Heaven winning,
Praising evermore.
