1. O Jesu, Saviour of us all,
With God the Father one,
His equal ere the world began,
Now born His only Son:

2. Our peace and glory, Lord, art Thou,
Sole hope of man distrest,
O hear the prayers that pour to Thee
Fro each devoted breast.

3. Thyself for us in mortal form
Thou freely didst enshrine:
Then grant that we, too, ma partake
Thy Nature all Divine.

4. To that exalted grace advanced,
Thy brethren shield from harm,
Lest they relaps to former sin,
Unaided by Thine arm.

5. The land, the heav'ns, the ocean vast,
In rival strains shall raise
To Him, Who gave Thee to the world
Glad songs of holy praise;

6. O Jesu, Virgin-born, with Thee,
The Father we adore!
O Holy Ghost, to Thee be praise
Both now and evermore!
