1 O Christ, the Son of God most high,
hear this, your sinful servant's cry:
in my soul's grief, remember me;
from heart's deep evils, set me free.

2 O Saviour Jesus, may I see
your radiant, shining Deity,
my soul and body filled with song
to praise my God all ages long.

Praise to your eternal merit,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit: Amen!
