1 My Lord, how great's the favor!
That I a sinner poor,
Can through thy blood's sweet savor
Approach thy mercy's door:
And find an open passage
Unto the throne of grace;
There wait the welcome message,
That bids me go in peace.

2 Lord, I'm an helpless creature,
Full of the deepest need.
Throughout defiled by nature
Stupid, and inly dead:
My strength is perfect weakness,
And all I have is sin;
My heart is all uncleanness,
A den of thieves within.

3 In this forlorn condition,
Who shall afford me aid?
Where shall I find compassion
But in the Church's Head?
Jesus thou art all pity,
O take me to thine arms,
And exercise thy mercy,
To save me from all harms.

4 I'll never cease repeating
My numberless complaints;
But ever be entreating
The glorious King of saints
'Till I attain the image
Of him I inly love;
And pay my grateful homage
With all the saints above.

5 Then I, with all in glory,
Will thankfully relate
The amazing, pleasing story
Of Jesu's love so great;
In this blest contemplation
I ever shall be well;
And prove such consolation,
As none below can tell.
