Now Let Us Pray To God The Holy Ghost


Now let us pray to God the Holy Ghost
For the true faith, which we need the most,
That he may defend us when life is ending
And from exile home we are wending.
Kyrieleis. (Lord, have mercy.)

Shine in our hearts, O thou most precious Light,
Teach us Jesus Christ to know aright,
That we may abide in the Lord who bought us;
To our homeland true he has brought us.
Kyrieleis. (Lord, have mercy.)

Thou sacred Love, thy grace on us bestow,
Set our hearts with heavenly fire aglow
That with hearts united we love each other,
Of one mind, in peace with our brother.
Kyrieleis. (Lord, have mercy.)

Thou highest Comfort in our every need,
Help us neither scorn nor death to heed,
That we may not falter nor courage fail us
When the Foe shall rail and assail us.
Kyrieleis. (Lord, have mercy.)
