CCXLVIII

LORD of mercy and of might,

Of mankind the life and light,

Maker, Teacher infinite,

JESUS! hear and save!

Who, when Sin's tremendous doom

Gave creation to the tomb,

Didst not scorn the Virgin's womb,

JESUS! hear and save!

Mighty Monarch! Saviour mild!

Humbled to a mortal child,

Captive, beaten, bound, reviled,

JESUS! hear and save!

Throned above celestial things,

Borne aloft on Angels' wings,

Lord of Lords, and King of kings,

JESUS! hear and save!

Who shalt yet return from high,

Robed in might and majesty,

Hear us! help us when we cry!

JESUS! hear and save!
