Representative Text

1 O God, Thou righteous, faithful Lord,
I have not kept Thy holy Word,
But sinned and oft offended Thee;
Now I repent--it grieveth me!

2 Thou, Father, merciful and kind,
No pleasure in my death dost find,
But strong desire doth in Thee burn
That I should unto Thee return.

3 Since Thou, O Father, callest me,
A sinner poor. I come to Thee,
Relying on the Savior's blood
That from His wounds most holy flowed.

4 In tender mercy let Thy grace
Through Jesus' blood my sins efface;
Then I, the poor lost child, will be
Of all offenses rid through Thee.

5 Let me, according to Thy Word,
Live henceforth unto Thee, O Lord;
That I may, after time is o'er,
Inherit life forevermore.

Amen.
