Prayer for the Safety of Australia as a Christian Nation (Imprimatur 1975 Archbishop of Melbourne T.F. Little)
We Thy people cry out in our affliction.
Do not scorn us but for the glory of Thy name come to our rescue.
Look mercifully upon us in our tribulation, and,
though we have justly deserved punishment, turn away Thy wrath.
Through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
Mary, Help of Christians,
bring succour and peace to Australia.
