Cantor: O God, Father in heaven, have mercy upon us!
Your heart, O God, is grieved we know
By every evil, every woe;
Upon Your cross-forsaken Son
Our death is laid, and peace is won.
Cantor: O Son of God, Redeemer of the world, have mercy upon us!
Your arms, extend, O Christ, to save
From sting of death and grasp of grave;
Your scars before the Father move
His heart to mercy at such love.
Cantor: O God, Holy Spirit, have mercy upon us!
O lavish Giver, come to aid
The feeble child Your grace has made.
Now make us grow and help us pray:
Bring joy and comfort, come to stay!
