Eyesus Kristos, the God of Ethiopia

"And this is life eternal, that they should know thee the only true God, and him whom thou didst send, even Eyesus Kristos."

John 17.3

Prince and princesses shall come out of Babylon
Ethiopians now stretch forth their hands unto God.
O Thou God of Ethiopia, Thy divine Majesty,
Thy Spirit has come into our hearts
To dwell in the paths of righteousness, lead us,
Help us to forgive that we may be forgiven;
Teach us love, loyalty on earth as it is in Zion.
Endow us with Thy wisdom,
Knowledge and overstanding to do Thy will.
Thy blessing to us, that hungry may be fed, the naked clothed,
The sick nourished, the aged protected and the infants cared for.
Deliver us from the hands of our enemies
That we may be fruitful in the last days
When our enemies are past and decayed:
In the depths of the sea, in the depths of the earth,
Or in the belly of the beast.
O give us all a place in Thy kingdom forever and ever.
