Ah ! do Thou give me penitence Like this, that I, when summoned hence, In paradise may rest.
Jesus! who bade the virgin John
Thy Mother take when Thou wert gone,
And in Thy stead to be; Oh when I yield my parting breath, Be Thou beside me, and in death,
Good Lord, remember me.
Jesus! true Man, who cried aloud, Toward the ninth hour, My God, My God,
Oh why am I forsaken ? Lord ! may I never fall from Thee, Nor e'en in life's extremity
My humble trust be shaken.
Jesus! athirst, the soldiers think To mock Thee, giving Thee to drink
What might inflame Thy pain ; Ah! mindful of the loathsome draught Which for my sins my Saviour quaffed,
May I my flesh restrain.
Jesus! Redeemer, all the price Of Adam's sin Thy sacrifice
Did more than fully pay; May I my stewardship fulfil With equal strictness, and Thy will
With scrupulous love obey.
