English.png English text

My trust O Lord in thee is grounded:
let me not therefore be confounded.
From all sin and iniquity
in thy goodness deliver me.
Bow down thine ear and hear my grievous groan;
make haste for my deliverance.
Be thou my rock and strong fortress
to save me in all my distress.

For all my trust thou art alone
my sure help and protection.
Into thy hands I do betake
my soul to save for Christes sake.
From hell thou hast redeemed me
O Lord thou God of verity.
Glory to God in every coast,
the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning
is and shall be world without ending.
