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

Lord of mercy and of might,

Of mankind the Life and Light,

Jesus, hear and save.

+++++

Strong Creator, Saviour mild,

Humbled to a mortal child,

Captive, beaten, bound, reviled,

Jesus, hear and save.

+++++

Lamb of God, for sinners slain,

Thou didst bear our grief and pain;

Cleanse us now from every stain;

Jesus, hear and save.

+++++

Throned above celestial things,

Borne aloft on angels’ wings,

Lord of lords and King of kings,

Jesus, hear and save.

+++++

Soon to come to earth again,

Judge of angels and of men,

Hear us now, and hear us then,

Jesus, hear and save.
