1 Jesu! Lord most mighty, humbly we adore
Thee, the King of glory, and Thy grace implore.
By Thy blood redeemèd, we Thy servants pray,
Spare us; Thou, O Jesu, tak’st our sins away.

2 By Thine unknown sorrows, mercy we entreat;
Sinners yet are welcome at their Savior’s feet.
Lord, with tears repenting, we our guilt bewail,
For we know Thy mercy, Lord, can never fail.

3 By Thy wounds and bruises, by Thy cross and grave,
Us in all our sorrows, Jesu! hear and save.
By Thine exaltation far above all height,
Evermore defend us, Lord of power and might!

4 In all tribulation, in our day of peace;
Whensoe’er upon us earthly joys increase;
When Thy voice shall call us, to the silent tomb;
When the world shall waken, to its day of doom.
