+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  Have mercy on us, God most high,

who lift our hearts to thee;

have mercy now, most merciful,

most holy Trinity.

2.  Thou wert not born; there was no fount

from which thy being flowed;

there is no end which thou canst reach;

but thou art simply God.

3.  When heaven and earth were yet unmade,

when time was yet unknown,

thou in thy bliss and majesty

didst live and love alone.

4.  How wonderful creation is,

the work that thou didst bless;

and O what then must thou be like,

eternal loveliness!

5.  Most ancient of all mysteries!

low at thy throne we lie;

have mercy now, most merciful,

most holy Trinity.
