        1. Jesus, pitying the sighs
        Of the thief who near Thee dies,
        Promising him Paradise:
        Hear us, holy Jesus.

        2. May we in our guilt and shame
        Still Thy love and mercy claim,
        Calling humbly on Thy name:
         Hear us, holy Jesus.

        3. May our hearts to Thee incline,
        Looking from our cross to Thine,
        Cheer our souls with hope divine:
        Hear us, holy Jesus.
