Lord, let us feel that Thou art near,

And while we pray, in mercy hear;

Crown with Thy love the opening year;--

Have mercy, Lord.

Of Thy benignity, we pray,

Thy gracious Spirit grant alway,

Our strife and discord to allay;--

Have mercy, Lord.

May peace our inmost soul possess,

And in our lives our converse bless,

With unaffected kindliness;--

Have mercy, Lord.

Our sinful past we here repent,

With tears our wayward course lament,

Now, let Thy pardoning grace be sent;--

Have mercy, Lord.


As seasons come, Good Lord, ordain

That we the fruits of earth obtain,

Send us the sunshine and the rain;--

Have mercy, Lord.

With strength Thy Holy Church endue,

The anger of her foes subdue,

The offerings of Thy grace renew;--

Have mercy, Lord.
