O Lord, our strength in weakness, We pray to Thee for grace, For power to fight the battle, For speed to run the race; When Thy baptismal waters Were poured upon our brow, We then were made Thy children And pledged our earliest vow.
Christ with His own blood bought us, And made the purchase sure; His are we; may He keep us Sober, and chaste, and pure. He, God in Man, has carried Our nature up to Heaven; And thence the Holy Spirit To dwell in us has given.
Conformed to His own likeness, May we so live and die, That in the grave our bodies In holy peace may lie; And at the Resurrection Forth from those graves may spring Like to the glorious body Of Christ, our Lord and King.
The pure in heart are blessèd For they shall see the Lord, For ever and for ever, By seraphim adored; And they shall drink the pleasure Such as no tongue can tell From the clear crystal river, And life’s eternal well.
Sing therefore to the Father, Who sent the Son in love; And sing to God the Savior Who leads to realms above; Sing we with saints and angels Before the heavenly throne, To God the Holy Spirit, Sing to the Three in One.
