Lord God To Us Foreer Secure


Lord God, to us fore’er secure
The catechism’s instruction pure,
By Luther, servant Thine, set forth
To plant in youth Thy saving word.

That we may learn Thy holy will,
Bewail our sins and faults, and still
Believe in Thee and in Thy son,
Enlightened by Thy Spirit’s boon.

That we to Thee, our Father, call
Who canst and wilt bring help to all,
That, children Thine in Baptism made,
We always Christian lives may lead.

That if we fall, we rise again,
And in true faith confess our sin,
And comfort by Thy Supper gain.
Grant us a happy end. Amen.
