1 Remember not, O God,
The sins of long ago;
In tender mercy visit us,
Distressed and humbled low.
2 O Lord, our Savior, help,
And glorify Thy Name;
Deliver us from all our sins
And take away our shame.
3 In Thy compassion hear
Thy prisoner's plaintive sigh,
And in the greatness of Thy power
Save those about to die.
4 Then, safe within Thy fold,
We will exalt Thy Name;
Our thankful hearts with songs of joy
Thy goodness will proclaim.
