2 Thousand thanks, great God, arise
Unto Thee, in grace excelling.
And to us dost here dispense
Thy pure word and sacraments.
Hath salvation surely rested.
To reveal the way to heaven.
In His temple to adore Him!
Treasures lasting, precious, pure,
From above we here secure.
With Thy holy word still feed us;
Keep Thy Church on earth secure

light shines brighter

The shield of faith in battle; [be, The Father's hand hath written there My title as His child and heir,

The bread of life receiving.

That, while pilgrims here below,
And in all Thy knowledge grow;
Thou who, out of sin's dark night,
Hast to Thine own marvelous light
Keep and seal us ever Thine,
