Representative Text

1 God the Father, God the Son,
God the Spirit, Three in One,
Hear us from Thy heavenly Throne,
Spare us, Holy Trinity.

2 Jesu, Saviour ever mild,
Born for us a little Child
Of the Virgin undefiled:
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

3 Jesu, by the Mother-Maid
In Thy swaddling-clothes arrayed,
And within a manger laid:
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

4 Jesu, at whose infant feet
Shepherds, coming thee to greet,
Knelt to pay their worship meet
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

5 Jesu, unto whom of yore
Wise men, hastening to adore,
Gold and myrrh and incense bore:
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

6 Jesu, to Thy temple brought,
Whom, by Thy good Spirit taught,
Simeon and Anna sought:
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

7 Jesu, who didst deign to flee
From King Herod's cruelty
In Thy earliest infancy:
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

8 Jesu, whom Thy Mother found
'Midst the doctors sitting round,
Marvelling at Thy words profound:
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

Part II:
From all pride and vain conceit,
From all spite and angry heat,
From all lying and deceit,
Save us, Holy Jesu.

2 From all sloth and idleness,
From not caring for distress,
From all lust and greediness:
Save us, Holy Jesu.

3 From refusing to obey,
From the love of our own way,
From forgetfulness to pray:
Save us, Holy Jesu.

Part III:
1 By Thy Birth and early years,
By Thine Infant wants and fears,
By Thy sorrows and thy tears;
Save us, Holy Jesu.

2 By Thy Pattern bright and pure,
By the pains Thou didst endure
Our salvation to procure,
Save us, Holy Jesu.

3 By Thy wounds and thorn-crowned head,
By Thy blood for sinners shed.
By Thy rising from the dead
Save us, Holy Jesu.

4 By the Name we bow before,
Human Name, which evermore
All the hosts of heaven adore,
Save us, Holy Jesu.

5 By Thine own unconquered might,
By Thy glory in the height,
By Thy mercies infinite:
Save us, Holy Jesu.
