O Lord, in thee is all my trust. Give ear unto my woeful cries. Refuse me not, that am unjust, But bowing down thy heav'nly eyes, Behold how I do still lament My sins wherein I thee offend. O Lord, for them shall I be shent, Sith thee to please I do intend? No, no, not so! Thy will is bent To deal with sinners in thine ire: But when in heart they shall repent Thou grant'st with speed their just desire. To thee therefore still shall I cry, To wash away my sinful crime. Thy blood, O Lord is not yet dry, But that it may help me in time. Haste now, O Lord, haste now, I say, To pour on me the gifts of grace; That when this life must flit away In Heav'n with thee I may have place, Where thou dost reign eternally With God which once did down thee send, Where angels sing continually. To thee be praise, world without end. Amen.
