1 Jesus, in your dying woes,
even while your lifeblood flows,
craving pardon for your foes:
hear us, holy Jesus!

2 Jesus, pitying the sighs
of the thief who near you dies,
promising him paradise:
hear us, holy Jesus!

3 Jesus, loving to the end
her whose heart your sorrows rend,
and your dearest human friend:
hear us, holy Jesus!

4 Jesus, plunged in depths unknown
with our evil foe alone,
while no light from heav'n is shown:
hear us, holy Jesus!

5 Jesus, in your thirst and pain,
while your wounds the lifeblood drain,
thus fulfilling Scripture's plan:
hear us, holy Jesus!

6 Jesus, all our ransom paid,
all your Father's will obeyed,
by your suff'rings perfect made:
hear us, holy Jesus!

7 Jesus, all your labor vast,
all your woe and conflict past,
yielding up your soul at last:
hear us, holy Jesus!
