1 O Lord our God, with earnest care,
With contrite fast, and tear, and prayer,
And works of mercy and of love,
We pray for pardon from above.
2 Be present now, be present here,
And mark Thy Church’s falling tear;
And own the grief that fills her eyes,
In mourning her iniquities.
3 Oh, by Thy grace be pardon won,
For sins that former years have done;
And let Thy mercy guard us still,
From crimes that threaten future ill.
4 So mortify our every sense,
Through grace of outward abstinence,
That from each stain and spot of sin,
Our souls may keep their fast within.
5 O Father, that we ask be done,
Through Jesus Christ, Thine only Son;
Who, with the Holy Ghost and Thee,
Shall live and reign eternally!
