Tho A Hundren Trials Beset The Innocent

Thou a hundred trials beset the innocent.
The Lord will bring him safely through them all.
For thou, God ever faithful, hast redeemed us for thy self,
And guard us God, while we sleep, that we may watch with Christ, and rest in peace.
Bring healing to a soul that has sinned against thee.
To thee all that is in heaven, all that is on earth belong to thee the kingdom.
Keep our tongue clear of harm, and our lips free from every treacherous word.
Have mercy on us, Christ, the Son of the living God,
Have mercy on us.

David E. Patton
