The Sunday of the Holy Trinity

May 31, 2015


Triune God, oh, be our stay And let us perish never! Cleanse us from our sins, we pray, And grant us life forever. Keep us from the evil one; Uphold our faith most holy; Grant us to trust you solely With humble hearts and lowly. Let us put God’s armor on, With all true Christians running Our heav’nly race and shunning The devil’s wiles and cunning. Amen, Amen! This be done; So sing we, Alleluia! (Christian Worship: A Lutheran Hymnal 192)
