Jesus, with thy Church abide, Be her Saviour, Lord, and Guide,
While on earth her faith is tried: We beseech thee, hear us.
May she guide the poor and blind, Seek the lost until she find,
And the brokenhearted bind: We beseech thee, hear us.
Save her love from growing cold, Make her watchmen strong and bold,
Fence her round, thy peaceful fold: We beseech thee, hear us.
May her lamp of truth be bright, Bid her bear aloft its light,
