A Commentary On The Psalms From Primitive and Mediæval Writers Volumes 1 To 4 by Rev. J.M. Neale D.D.

GOD,* That art the Source of mercy, Who for us didst descend into the womb of the Virgin; wast nailed to the Cross; didst behold Thy garments divided; didst rise Victor from Hell; we beseech Thee that Thou, remembering this Thy conversation amongst us, wouldst free Thy people from the mouth of the lion, as Thou didst once deliver their fathers that hoped in Thee. Who livest.

O LORD GOD,* Who, when our fathers cried unto Thee, didst set them free, when they trusted in Thee didst save them; we pray and beseech Thee not to be far from us, but to haste to our defence, and to save us from the mouth of the lion. Through (1.)

(11.)

[O GOD the FATHER Almighty, (D. C.) Who didst will to send Thy SON our LORD JESUS CHRIST into the world for His Passion, and to call back man to the kingdom of heaven, who had been tempted by the fruit of the forbidden tree, and cast out of the bliss of Paradise, look upon us who cry unto Thee, deliver us from words of sin, and save us who trust in Thee for evermore. Through the same (2.)]
