181. The Seven Words on the Cross: II Jesus, pitying the Sighs

Part II

"To-day shalt thou be with Me in Paradise."

1 Jesus, pitying the sighs
Of the thief who near Thee dies,
Promising him Paradise:
Hear us, Holy Jesus.

2 May we in our guilt and shame
Still Thy love and mercy claim,
Calling humbly on Thy name:
Hear us, Holy Jesus.

3 May our hearts to Thee incline,
Looking from our cross to Thine;
Cheer our souls with hope divine:
Hear us, Holy Jesus.

Amen.
