Translation by Matthew Parker, Archbishop (1504 - 1575)

God grant we grace
Language: English  after the Latin 
God grant we grace, he us embrace.
In gentle part bless he our heart.
With loving face shine he in place.
His mercies all on us to fall.
That we thy way may know all day,
While we do sail this world so frail.
Thy health’s reward is nigh declared,
As plain as eye all Gentiles spy.
