482. Triune God, O Be Our Stay

Triune God, O be our stay
and let us perish never!
Cleanse us from our sins, we pray,
and grant us life forever.
Keep us from the evil one;
uphold our faith most holy,
and let us trust you solely
with humble hearts and lowly.
Let us put God's armor on,
with all true Christians running
our heav'nly race and shunning
the devil's wiles and cunning.
Amen, amen! This be done;
so sing we, "Alleluia!"
[Lent: O Lord, have mercy on us.]
