180. The Seven Words on the Cross: I Jesus, in Thy Dying woes

Part I:

"Father, forgive them: for thy know not what they do."

1 Jesus, in Thy dying woes,
Even while Thy life-blood flows,
Craving pardon for Thy foes:
Hear us, Holy Jesus.

2 Savior, for our pardon sue,
When our sins Thy pangs renew,
For we know not what we do:
Hear us, Holy Jesus.

3 Oh, may we, who mercy need,
Be like Thee in heart and deed
When with wrong our spirits bleed!
Hear us, Holy Jesus.
