311. O saving Victim, opening wide

1. O saving Victim, opening wide
the gate of heaven to man below,
our foes press on from every side,
thine aid supply, thy strength bestow.

2. All praise and thanks to thee ascend
for evermore, blest One in Three;
O grant us life that shall not end
in our true native land with thee.
