O Lorde, the maker of al thing

John Joubert

O Lorde, the maker of al thing,
We pray Thee nowe in this evening
Us to defende through Thy mercy,
From al deceite of our our enemy.

Let neither us deluded be,
Good Lorde, with dreame or phantasy;
Our hearts waking in thee thou kepe
That we in sinne fal not on slepe.

O Father, throughe thy blessed Son,
Grant us this oure petition,
To whom, with the Holy Ghost alwaies,
In heaven and yearth be laude and praise.

attrib. Henry VIII
