Jesus, full of grace and mercy,
Listen to our humble cry;
From Thy throne above in glory,
Turn on us Thy gracious eye.

We are poor, but Thou art mighty;
Help for souls on Thee is laid:
Come, Thou Jesus! God of mercy,
Bless us in our time of need.

Low we bend ’neath sin’s dark burden,
But Thy power can make us clean;
Savior, hear us! hear and pardon—
Wash us from all guilt and sin.

Purify our souls and spirits,
Cleanse us in Thy precious blood;
Make us joy and peace inherit,
Saved and blest by Thee our God.
