O Kindest Maker.
3 Our souls to crimes unnumber'd own, Be grace to free confession shown; Let sickly souls Thy healing chaim, That all my praise thy glorious name.
4 Grant that by stinted used of food, Our bodies may be so subdued,
That grace may guide our stubborn will, And stifle all that leads to ill.
5 May this our solemn yearly fast The future aid, repair the past; O holy Godhead, Three in One, The Father, Holy Ghost, and Son. Amen.
