Help To Humans


Tune: St James' Air

Adapted from ' A Prayer to God the Father'

by St Clement of Rome: b. 1st Century AD - d. 101 AD


We beseech you, Father, Master

Be helper, protector

Save the afflicted here among

Us, praises to you sung


Have mercy on the lowly, raise

Up fallen, so they praise

You, and appear to the needy

Come, heal the ungodly


Restore the wanderers of your

People, bring them back sure

Ransom our prisoners, up raise

The sick to healthful days


Comfort the faint-hearted, mercy

Have on us all, so be*

What we do ask in prayer humbly

Give us by grace freely


* The actual prayer finishes at the end of this line.
