2 Arms of love around her throw,

Shield her safe from every foe,
Calm her in the time of woe :

We beseech thee, hear us. 3 Keep her life and doctrine pure,

Help her, patient to endure,
Trusting in thy promise sure :

We beseech thee, hear us. 4 Be thou with her all the days,

May she, safe from error's ways,
Toil for thine eternal praise :

We beseech thee, hear us. 5 May her voice be ever clear,

Warning of a judgment near,
Telling of a Saviour dear:

We beseech thee, hear us. 6 All her ruin'd works repair,

Build again thy temple fair,
Manifest thy presence there:

We beseech thee, hear us. 7 All her fetter'd powers release,

Bid our strife and envy cease,
Grant the heavenly gift of peace :

We beseech thee, hear us. 8 All her questions reconcile,

Let not Satan's touch defile,
Let not worldly snares beguile :

We beseech thee, hear us. 9 May she one in doctrine be,

One in truth and charity,
Winning all to faith in thee:

We beseech thee, hear us. 10 May she guide the poor and blind,

Seek the lost until she find,
And the broken-hearted bind :

We beseech thee, hear us.

11 Save her love from growing cold,

Make her watchmen strong and bold,
Fence her round-thy peaceful fold :

We beseech thee, hear us. 12 May her priests thy people feed,

Shepherds of the flock indeed,
Ready, where they call, to lead :

We beseech thee, hear us. 13 May they live the truths they know,

And a holy pattern show,
As before thy flock they go :

We beseech thee, hear us. 14 May the grace of him who died,

And the Father's love abide,
And the Spirit ever guide :

We beseech thee, hear us.

15 All her evil purge away,

All her doubts and fears allay,
Hasten, Lord, her triumph day:

We beseech thee, hear us. 16 Help her in her time of fast,

Till her toil and woe are past,
And the Bridegroom come at last :

We beseech thee, hear us.

17 May she then all glorious be,

Spotless and from wrinkle free,
Pure and bright and worthy thee:

We beseech thee, hear us.

18 Fit her all thy joy to share,

In the home thou dost prepare,
And be ever blessed there :
We beseech thee, hear us.

Amen,
