183. The Seven Words on the Cross: IV Jesus, Whelmed in Fears Unknwon

Part IV

"My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?"

1 Jesus, whelmed in fears unknown,
With our evil left alone,
While no light from heaven is shown:
Hear us, Holy Jesus.

2 When we vainly seem to pray,
And our hopes seem far away,
In the darkness be our Stay:
Hear us, Holy Jesus.

3 Though no Father seem to hear,
Though no light our spirits cheer,
May we know that God is near:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

Amen.
