Jesus, in thy dying woes,

Even while thy life-blood flows,

Craving pardon for thy foes:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

Savior, for our pardon sue,

When our sins thy pangs renew,

For we know not what we do:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

O may we, who mercy need,

Be like thee in heart and deed,

When with wrong our spirits bleed:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

Jesus, pitying the sighs

Of the thief, who near thee dies,

Promising him Paradise:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

May we, in our guilt and shame,

Still thy love and mercy claim,

Calling humbly on thy Name:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

O remember us who pine,

Looking from our cross to thine;

Cheer our souls with hope divine:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

Jesus, loving to the end

Her whose heart thy sorrows rend,

And thy dearest human friend:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

May we in thy sorrows share,

And for thee all peril dare,

And enjoy thy tender care:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

May we all thy loved ones be,

All one holy family,

Loving for the love of thee:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

Jesus, whelmed in fears unknown,

With our evil left alone,

While no light from heaven is shown:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

When we vainly seem to pray,

And our hope seems far away,

In the darkness be our stay:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

Though no Father seem to hear,

Though no light our spirits cheer,

Tell our faith that God is near:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

Jesus, in thy thirst and pain,

While thy wounds thy life-blood drain,

Thirsting more our love to gain:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

Thirst for us in mercy still;

All thy holy work fulfill:

Satisfy thy loving will:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

May we thirst thy love to know;

Lead us in our sin and woe

Where the healing waters flow:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

Jesus, all our ransom paid,

All thy Father's will obeyed,

By thy sufferings perfect made:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

Save us in our soul's distress,

Be our help to cheer and bless,

While we grow in holiness:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

Brighten all our heavenward way

With an ever holier ray,

Till we pass to perfect day:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

Jesus, all thy labour vast,

All thy woe and conflict past,

Yielding up thy soul at last:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

When the death shades round us lower,

Guard us from the tempter's power,

Keep us in that trial hour:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

May thy life and death supply

Grace to live and grace to die,

Grace to reach the home on high:

Hear us, Holy Jesus.

Amen.
