Amidst haters and mockers 

Birth of John to her a succour 

Saying weep not child again.

Before all my enemies.

And Thy blessing to Noah

On the surface of the earth.

Nay flying birds of the sky

Be merciful to Thine image 

Bless and fertilize my womb.

Oh God of my destiny.

l admit, Guilty I am

The canal path I have trodden 

Tribulations there I earn.

Thou most gracious God divine.  Amen
