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 Thou Who, leaving crown and throne,
Camest here, an outcast lone,
That Thou mightest save thine own:
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

3 Thou with sinners wont to eat,
Who with loving words didst greet
Mary weeping at Thy feet:
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

4 Thou Whose saddened look did chide
Peter when he thrice denied,
Till with bitter tears he cried:
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

5 Thou Who hanging on the tree
To the thief saidst,"Thou shalt be
To-day in Paradise with Me:"
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

6 Thou, despised, denied, refused,
And for man's transgressions bruised,
Sinless, yet of sin accused:
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

7 Thou Who on the cross didst reign,
Dying there in bitter pain,
Cleansing with Thy blood our stain:
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

8 Shepherd of the straying sheep,
Comforter of them that weep,
Hear us crying from the deep:
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

9 That in Thy pure innocence
We may wash our souls' offense,
And find truest penitence:
We beseech Thee, Jesu.

10 That we give to sin no place,
That we never quench Thy grace,
That we ever seek Thy face:
We beseech Thee, Jesu.

11 That denying evil lust,
Living godly, meek, and just,
In Thee only we may trust:
We beseech thee, Jesu.

12 That to sin forever dead,
We may live to Thee instead,
And the narrow pathway tread:
We beseech Thee, Jesu.

13 When shall end the battle sore,
When our pilgrimage is o'er,
Grant Thy peace for evermore:
We beseech Thee, Jesu.
