Modern text:

 

God, keep us steadfast in your Word;

Curb those who by deceit or sword

Would draw the people from your ways

And seize your name in empty praise.

 

O, Jesus Christ, our strife release,

For you are Justice, Truth and Peace;

Renew your church that we may live

To love and welcome and forgive.

 

O Comforter of priceless worth,

Send peace and unity on earth;

Support us in our days of strife

And lead us out of fear to Life.

 

Original text (included):

 

Lord, keep us steadfast in your Word;

Curb those who by deceit or sword

Would wrest the kingdom from your Son

And bring to nought all he has done.

 

Lord Jesus Christ, your pow'r make known,

For you are Lord of lords alone;

Defend your holy Church, that we

May sing your praise triumphantly.

 

O Comforter of priceless worth,

Send peace and unity on earth;

Support us in our final strife

And lead us out of death to life.
