887. O Saving Victim

1 O saving Victim, op'ning wide
The gate of heav'n to us below!
Our foes press on from ev'ry side:
Your aid supply, your strength bestow.

2 To your great name be endless praise,
Immortal Godhead, One in Three;
O grant us endless length of days
When our true native land we see.
