O Peter, who were named by Christ
The guardian-shepherd of his flock,
Protect the Church he built on you
To stand unyielding, firm on rock.
Apostle of the gentiles, Paul,
The greatest witness of them all,
You turned to Christ, the risen Lord,
When out of light you heard him call.
Unseen, eternal Trinity,
We give you glory, praise your name,
Your love keeps faith with those who fall:
Through time and change you are the same.
