Deliver Us, that We May Praise

old_sarum_cathedral_reconstructionMost merciful God,
our foundation of hope
and our refuge in trouble,
deliver us from the snares of death
so that even with the many troubles that surround us
we may sing praises to your holy name
in purity and innocence;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
