        1. Now may He who from the dead
        Brought the Shepherd of the sheep,
        Jesus Christ, our King and Head,
        All our souls in safety keep!

        2. May He teach us to fulfil
        What is pleasing in His sight,
        Perfect us in all His will,
        And preserve us day and night!

        3. To that dear Redeemer's praise,
        Who the covenant sealed with blood,
        Let our hearts and voices raise
        Loud thanksgivings to our God.
