v. 1
To our Lord we lift our eyes,
to our Savior crucified,
now enthroned above the skies,
Jesus, Lord, have mercy.

You command but also fill,
pour Your Holy Spirit till,
we delight to do Your will,
Jesus, Lord, have mercy.

When from You we look away,
and no longer see Your face,
and are in a dismal place,
Jesus, Lord, have mercy.

Father, turn us from our sin,
grant to us the Light within,
all are blessed who walk with Him,
Jesus, Lord, have mercy.

but with You we would abide,
You for us were crucified,
Jesus, Lord, have mercy.
