O Faithful God We Worship Thee


O FAITHFUL God, we worship Thee!
Thou pardon’st our iniquity,
Thou grantest help in sin’s distress,
And soul and body Thou dost bless.

Thou, through Thy servant, say’st to me:
“Thy sins are all forgiven thee,
Depart in peace; but sin no more,
And e’er my pardoning grace adore.”

O Lord, we bless Thy gracious heart,
For Thou Thyself dost heal our smart,
Through Christ our Savior’s precious blood,
Which for the sake of sinners flowed.

Give us Thy Spirit, peace afford
Now and forever, gracious Lord!
Thy Word and holy Sacrament
Preserve to us, till life is spent.
