Lord, Thy mercy on us cast,
Use our service, ev'ry piece,
Grant us from Thy treasure vast
Mercy, blessing and release,

Let me, Lord, before Thee stand,
Wakefully my watch I'd keep,
Should I fall to slumber's hand,
Guard Thou me from sinful sleep

Waking, if to wrong I take,
Mercifully absolve Thou me;
Sleeping, if a sin I make,
Pardon grant in clemency.

By the cross of Thy disgrace
Grant me, Lord, a restful sleep,
Evil dreams do Thou efface,
Wicked thoughts far from me keep.

Through the night conduct me, Lord,
Peaceful sleep give Thou to me
Lest foul thoughts in me find hord,
Phantoms lest a terror be.

Grant Thy angel's watchful view,
Guard my limbs without abate,
Hateful lusts in me subdue,
By Thy living flesh I ate.

While I lie and sleep in calm,
May Thy blood my keeper be.
Let my soul dwell free from qualm
In Thine image mad'st Thou me.

Overshadow with Thy hand,
Me a handicraft of Thine,
Let me in Thy fortress stand,
Mercy shielding round be mine.

While my body silent lies,
May Thy pow'r its vigil keep,
Let my breath like incense rise,
T'ward Thy greatness in my sleep.

Let not evil touch my bed,
By Thy mother's pleas for me,
By Thy blood atoning shed,
Satan's harm remov-ed be.

Since Thy word abides the same,
Guarded by Thy cross I'd be;
Waking, I shall praise Thy Name,
Who didst love e'en feeble me.

Grant O Lord, a list'ning ear,
With desire to do Thy will;
Let Thy peace at eve be near,
Night Thy righteousness fulfil.

Saviour Christ, our hearts inspire,
Thee to see effulgent bright-
Thee whose honour shines as fire,
Worshipped by all sons of light.

Jesus, Saviour of the World,
Thou who dwellest in the light,
Praise we Thee for love unfuried-
Mercy, now with future bright.

Lord, our God, we give Thee praise.
Praise a thousand thousand fold
Tens of Thousands praises raise,
Mercy now, till time untold.

Thou who hearest pray'rs to Thee,
Supplications who dost heed,
Hear us reconcil-ed be,
Mercy show, and grant our need.
Have mercy upon me, O Lord, according to Thy loving kindness, and according to the multitude of Thy mercies, blot out my transgressions.

Wash me from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sins; for I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sins are ever before me.

Against Thee, Thee only, have I sinned, and done evil before Thee. For Thou shall be justified Thy word, and blameless in Thy judgment. For I was born in iniquity and in sins did my mother conceive me.

For Thou has desired the truth, and made known to me the mysteries of Thy wisdom. Sprinkle upon me with Thy hyssop; purge me with it, and I shall be whiter than snow.

Fill me with Thy joy and gladness, and my feeble bones shall rejoice. Turn Thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew within me a right spirit. Cast me not away from Thy presence, and take not Thy Holy Spirit from me.

Restore to me the joy of Thy salvation and may thy glorious spirit uphold me. Then will I teach the iniquitous Thy way, and the sinners shall be converted to Thee.

Deliver me from blood-guiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation, and my tongue shall extol Thy righteousness. O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall sing forth Thy praises.

For Thou hadst no delight in mere sacrifices; neither hadst Thou been reconciled by mere burnt offerings. The sacrifices acceptable to God are a humble spirit, and a broken heart, God despises not.

Do good to Zion, according to Thy good pleasure, and build Thou the walls of Jerusalem. Then wilt Thou be pleased with righteous sacrifices, and in whole burnt offerings. Then shall they offer bullocks upon Thine altar.
