O Lamb Of God In Mercy Hear


O Lamb of God, in mercy hear;
Thy voice the broken heart can cheer:
O Lord, beyond expression
Is our sin and transgression:
Yet higher still Thy grace doth rise,
Thou once Thyself our sacrifice.
We sinners life inherit
Through Thy all powerful merit.
Thy death obtained for us release-
Thy sorrows our eternal peace.
Brought forth from darkness into light,
Passed is the deep and awful night:
We are to hope redeemed.

Henceforth preserve us ever Thine;
Around our path, O Savior! shine:
O come, with peace descending-
Peace ever Thee attending.
Our hearts anew Thy temple’s frame,
All hallowed to Thy glorious name:
Where all was desolation
Raise up Thy new creation.
Let all within be lowliness;
Our spirits with Thy Spirit bless:
So evermore in us abide;
Thy grace in us be glorified,
O Lamb of God! our Savior!
