Hearken, O Lord (Attende Domine)

Mozarabic 10th Century Hymn of Praise

Hearken, O Lord, and have mercy,
for we have sinned against Thee.

Crying, we raise our eyes to Thee, Sovereign King, Redeemer of all.
Listen, Christ, to the pleas of the supplicant sinners.

Hearken, O Lord, and have mercy,
for we have sinned against Thee.

Thou art at the Right Hand of God the Father, the Keystone,
the Way of salvation and Gate of Heaven, cleanse the stains of our sins.

Hearken, O Lord, and have mercy,
for we have sinned against Thee.

O God, we beseech Thy majesty to hear our groans;
to forgive our sins.

Hearken, O Lord, and have mercy,
for we have sinned against Thee.

We confess to Thee our consented sins; we declare our hidden sins with contrite heart;
in Thy mercy, O Redeemer, forgive them.

Hearken, O Lord, and have mercy,
for we have sinned against Thee.

Thou wert captured, being innocent; brought about without resistance,
condemned by impious men with false witnesses.
O Christ keep safe those whom Thou hast redeemed.

Hearken, O Lord, and have mercy, for we have sinned against Thee.
