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.
