Lord, Your Mercy Show

September 19, 2022

Lord God, by the Precious Blood
Your Son Jesus suffering shed
in His Garden Agony,
overcome with terrible dread,
with trembling sweat before the cockcrow;
I ask You, Lord, Your mercy show
to all those who with pain did tread.

Call them to You with the blessed,
with pure of heart and lovers of peace,
with the meek and humble join,
form their sins grant swift release;
for them, Lord, I ask a part
in Your kingdom of the heart,
Where their joys would never cease.

— By a Columban Missionary
