Full Text

Refrain:
Hear us, O Lord, have mercy upon us:
for we have sinn'd against thee.

1 To thee, Redeemer, on thy throne of glory:
lift we our weeping eyes in holy pleadings:
listen O Jesu, to our supplications. [Refrain]

2 O thou chief Corner-stone, Right Hand of the Father
Way of Salvation, Gate of Life Celestial
cleanse thou our sinful souls from all defilement. [Refrain]

3 God, we implore thee, in thy glory seated
bow down and hearken to they children
pity and pardon all our grievous trespasses. [Refrain]

4 Sins oft committed now we lay before thee
with true contrition, now no more we veil them
grant us, Redeemer, loving absolution. [Refrain]

5 Innocent, captive, taken unresisting
falsely accused, and for us sinners sentenced,
save us, we pray thee, Jesu our Redeemer. [Refrain]
