(LITANY. [HERVERY'S.] 7,7,7,6)
Thomas B. Pollock]], 1871 Altered Frederick A. J. Hervey, 1846-
 
1.

Jesus, with thy Church abide, Be her Saviour, Lord, and Guide,
While on earth her faith is tried: We beseech thee, hear us.

2.

May she guide the poor and blind, Seek the lost until she find,
And the brokenhearted bind: We beseech thee, hear us.

3.

Save her love from growing cold, Make her watchmen strong and bold,
Fence her round, thy peaceful fold: We beseech thee, hear us.

4.

May her lamp of truth be bright, Bid her bear aloft its light,

Bring all nations clearer sight: We beseech thee, hear us. Amen.
