1 Father, God, who seest in me
Only sin and misery,
Turn to thy Anointed One,
Look on thy Anointed Son
Him, and then the sinner, see:
Look through Jesus' wounds on me.
2 Heavenly Father, Lord of all,
Hear and show thou hear'st my call!
Bow thine ear, in mercy bow,
Smile on me a sinner now!
Now the stone to flesh convert,
Cast a look, and melt my heart.
3 Lord, I cannot let thee go,
Till a blessing thou bestow;
Hear my Advocate divine,
Lo! to his, my suit I join;
Join'd with his, it cannot fail:
Let me now with thee prevail!
4 Jesus, answer from above,
Is not all thy nature love!
Pity from thine eye let fall;
Bless me whilst on thee I call:
Am I thine, thou Son of God?
Take the purchase of thy blood.
