257. Have Mercy On Us, God Most High

1 Have mercy on us, God most high,
who lift our hearts to thee;
have mercy now, most merciful,
most holy Trinity.

2 When heaven and earth were yet unmade,
when time was yet unknown,
thou in thy bliss and majesty
didst live and love alone.

3 How wonderful creation is,
the work which thou didst bless;
and O what then must thou be like,
eternal Loveliness!

4 Most ancient of all mysteries!
Low at thy throne we lie:
have mercy now, most merciful,
most holy Trinity.
