Hear us O Lord Lyrics (Key C)




1. King high exalted, all the world’s redeemer,

To thee thy children lift their eyes with weeping,

Christ, we implore thee,

Hear our supplications.


s:d’:m’/f:-:m’.r’/d’:-:r’/m:-:-/ 2x


Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon us,

For we have sinned against you.

2. Right hand of Godhead,

headstone of the corner

Path of salvation,

gate of heaven’s kingdom,

Cleanse thou thy people,

stained with their transgressions.

We, thy eternal majesty entreating,

Make lamentation in Thy holy hearing,

Graciously grant Thou to our sins indulgence.

4. Humbly confess we, who have sinned against thee,

All our misdoing, hidden now no longer,

May thy redeeming mercy find us pardon.

5. Led away captive, guiltless, unresisting,

Brought by false witness unto death for sinners,

Christ do thou keep us who thy blood hath ransomed.
