Preserve us Lord by thy deare Word,
From Turk and Pope defend us Lord,
Which both would thrust out of his throne
Our Lord Jesus Christ, thy deare Sonne.
Lord Jesus Christ shew forth thy might,
That thou are Lord of Lords by right:
Thy poore afflicted flock defend,
That we may praise thee without end.
God Holy Ghost our Comforter.
Be our patron, help, and succour:
Give us one mind and perfect peace,
All gifts of grace in us increase.
Thou living God in persons three,
Thy Name be prais'd in unity:
In all our need so us defend,
That we praise thee without end.
Wisdom, Robert, d. 1568; archdeacon of Ely; one of the earliest preachers of the Reformation in Oxford; d. Sept. 1568; "his metrical translation of the 125th Psalm was in use as late as 1693"
