Thy People with Salvation crown,
Bless those, O God, that are chine own :
Govern thy Church, and Lord, advance
For ever thine Inheritance.

From day to day, O Lord, do we
Highly exalt and honour 'Thee.
Thy Name we worship and adore
World without End for evermore.
Vouchsafe, O Lord, we humbly pray,
To keep us safe from Sin this Day.
O Lord, have Mercy on us all ;
Have mercy on us, when we call.
Thy Mercy, Lord, to us dispense
According to our confidence.
Lord, we have put our Trust in thee,
Confounded let us never be.
