Revised by Martin Luther, 1524; German text

God, the Father, with us stay,
Nor suffer us to perish;
Refrain:
All our sins O take away,
Us dying, cheer and cherish.
From the power of hell defend;
This grace to us be granted:
Upon thee to be planted,
In heartfelt faith undaunted,
Trusting thee unto the end;
With saints of every nation,
Escaping hell's temptation,
Kept by the Lord's salvation.
Amen! Amen! Answer send!
So sing we all Hallelujah!
2. Jesus, Saviour with us stay,
Nor suffer us to perish;
Refrain:

3. Holy Spirit, with us stay,
Nor suffer us to perish;
Refrain:
