Keep us, since He is the sole defender of the Church, and protects it under His guardianship
Make his face to shine upon us, for there is nothing more desirable for our happiness than this—that we may perceive and taste the sweetness of God's goodness, which may cheer us like the brightness of the sun when it illumines the world in serene weather.
Be gracious to us, as His mercy is what alone reconciles Him to us; if not for this, we would have no hope of being smiled upon by a holy God.
Lift up His countenance upon us, which is a common phrase from Scripture meaning, "May God remember His people." Because, in our frailty, we often need proof of His care for our welfare.
Give us peace, which signifies not only rest and a tranquil state, but also prosperity and success.
