51. God the Father, our Defence

I. God the Father, our Defence!
O save us from Damnation;
All Transgressions take from hence,
And grant us thy Salvation;
Guard us from the Tempter's Snare,
Within thy own Protection,
That under thy Direction
Our Faith may 'scape Infection.
We rely upon thy Care.
With all thy Well-beloved,
Thy Grace be thus improved,
That we may ne'er be moved.
Amen, Amen, be the Word!
So shall we truly praise the Lord.

II. Lord Christ Jesus! our Defence!
O save us from Damnation;
All Transgressions take from hence,
And grant us thy Salvation;
Guard us from the Tempter's Snare,
Within thy own Protection,
That under thy Direction
Our Faith may 'scape Infection.
We rely upon thy Care.
With all thy Well-beloved,
Thy Grace be thus improved,
That we may ne'er be moved.
Amen, Amen, be the Word!
So shall we truly praise the Lord.

III. Blessed Spirit, our Defence,
O save us from Damnation;
All Transgressions take from hence,
And grant us thy Salvation;
Guard us from the Tempter's Snare,
Within thy own Protection,
That under thy Direction
Our Faith may 'scape Infection.
We rely upon thy Care.
With all thy Well-beloved,
Thy Grace be thus improved,
That we may ne'er be moved.
Amen, Amen, be the Word!
So shall we truly praise the Lord.
