17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; 18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; 19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life. 20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: 21 Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.(KJV)

1. Lord, help us ever to retain 
The Catechism’s doctrine plain 
As Luther taught the Word of Truth 
In simple style to tender youth. 

2. Help us Thy holy Law to learn, 
To mourn our sin, and from it turn 
In faith to Thee and to Thy Son 
And Holy Spirit, Three in One. 

3. Hear us, dear Father, when we pray 
For needed help from day to day 
That as Thy children we may live, 
Whom Thou in Baptism didst receive. 

4. Lord, when we fall and sin doth stain, 
Absolve and lift us up again; 
And through the Sacrament increase 
Our faith till we depart in peace.
