Remember Mercy

mercy

I

Hallowed deity

We draw near your territory

Benevolently hear our cry

Heed to our query

Give an ear to our inquiry

From lips so parched and dry

II

We have heard of a story

Long told throughout our ancestry

Flowing down to us through history

Fresh from our ancestor’s memory

Narrated with reference to you awesome glory

Relating to your splendid victory

Over your adversary

How you gave your life in Calvary

Gave yourself as our emissary

III

Show us your mercy

Hoard us from your fury

Pardon us of our banditry

Nurse back to health our injury

Grant understanding to our cabinetry

Re-establish your joy in your ministry

We present our living, a holy offertory

Restore righteousness in our monastery

Bestow sight to our vision that is blurry
