Deliver Us from Evil

Lord God,
almighty Father,
graciously spare us sinners.
Although we sin without ceasing
and have earned punishment,
graciously turn these punishments from us.
Finally, deliver us from all
the sin, trouble, misery and sorrow
in this poor life,
that we may attain
your eternal righteousness and blessedness;
for the sake of your dear Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Original in German:

Allmächtiger Herr Gott Vater, wir bitten dich, du wollest unsere Sunde gnädiglich verschonen, und wiewol wir ohne Unterlaß sündigen und eitel Strafe verdienen, so verleihe doch gnädiglich, daß alle wolverdiente Strafen von uns abgewendet werden, und wir endlich von allen Sünden, Jammer, Elend, und Herzeleid dieses armen Lebens erlöset, deine ewige Gerechtigkcit und Seligkeit ererben mögen, um Jesu Christi deines lieben Sohns, unsers Herrn willen. Amen.
