A Hymn
CXI. Robert Wisdom
PRESERUE vs, Lord, by thy deare word,
From Turke and pope defend vs, Lord,
Which both would thrust out of his throne
Our Lord Jesus Christ, thy deare Sonne.
Lord Jesus Christ, shew forth thy might;        5
Yea, thou art Lord of lords by right:
Thy poore afflicted flocke defend,
That we may praise thee without end.
God, Holy Ghost, our Comforter,
Be our patron, helpe, and succour:        10
Geue vs one minde and perfect peace;
All gifts of grace in vs increase.
Thou liuing God in persons three,
Thy name be praysed in vnity:
In all our neede so vs defend,        15
That we may prayse thee world without end.
