Johann Heerman, 1630, tr. by Matthias Loy, 1880; German text
Thine honor save, O Christ, our Lord!|
Hear Zion's cries and help afford;
Destroy the wiles of mighty foes
Who now Thy Word and truth oppose.
2. Their craft and pomp indeed are great,
3. Forgive, O Lord, our sins forgive;|
Grant us Thy grace and let us live.
Convince Thy foes throughout the land
That godless counsels shall not stand.
4. That Thou art with us, Lord, proclaim
5. Preserve Thy little flock in peace,|
Nor let Thy boundless mercy cease;
To all the world let it appear
That Thy true Church indeed is here.
