LENT.
Oh happy time of blessed tears, Of surer hopes, of chast'ning fears, Undoing all our evil years. Oh hearken when we cry,
Chastise us with Thy fear; Yet, Father! in the multitude Of Thy compassions, hear !
We, who have loved the world, must learn. Upon that world our backs to turn, And with the love of God to burn. Oh hearken when we cry,
Chastise us with Thy fear ; Yet, Father! in the multitude Of Thy compassions, hear ?
Vile creatures of such little worth ! Than we, there can be none on earth More fallen from their Christian birth. Oh hearken when we cry,
Chastise us with Thy fear; Yet, Father ! in the multitude Of Thy compassions, hear !
Full long in sin's dark ways we went, Yet now our steps are heavenward bent> And grace is plentiful in Lent. Oh hearken when we cry,
Chastise us with Thy fear; Yet, Father! in the multitude Of Thy compassions, hear !
