Holy Trinity, Keep Us in Your Grace

Almighty and eternal God,
God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit,
you have shown your rich grace and mercy to us.
Eternal Father,
you created us at the beginning.
Eternal Son of God,
for us you became truly human,
and for our sins you bore the cross.
Eternal Spirit,
you proceed from the Father and the Son from eternity,
and through your holy Gospel you give us faith and holiness.
O one, eternal and almighty God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
keep us in your grace until our life’s end
in the eternal blessedness in the life to come.
