Sing this hymn to honor Saint Raphael, whose feast day was October 24, according to the Roman liturgical calendar before Vatican II. His feast is now combined with St. Michael and St. Gabriel, on September 29. Composed by Johannes Brahms, Deutsche Volkslieder, No. 7.

DIRECTIONS

1. Comfort unfailing, help thou the ailing, Saint Raphael. Troubles distress us, evils oppress us, O help, O help, Saint Raphael.

2. While we are sleeping, watch thou art keeping, Saint Raphael. Troubles distress us, do not forget us, O help, O help, Saint Raphael.

3. For none damnation, for all salvation, Saint Raphael. Sinners, repent ye, humbly relent ye, O help, O help, Saint Raphael.
