I. Jesus in Your Dying Woes  Luke 23:34

Jesus, in Thy dying woes,
Even while Thy lifeblood flows,
Craving pardon for Thy foes:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

Savior, for our pardon sue
When our sins Thy pangs renew
For we know not what we do:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

O may we, who mercy need,
Be like Thee in heart and deed,
When with wrong our spirits bleed:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

II. Jesus, Pitying the Sighs  Luke 23:43

Jesus, pitying the sighs
Of the thief, who near Thee dies,
Promising him Paradise:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

May we in our guilt and shame
Still Thy love and mercy claim,
Calling humbly on Thy name:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

O remember us who pine,
Looking from our cross to Thine;
Cheer our souls with hope divine:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

III. Jesus, Loving to the End  John 19: 26, 27

Jesus, loving to the end
Her whose heart your sorrows rend,
And your dearest human friend:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

May we in Thy sorrows share,
And for Thee all peril dare,
And enjoy Thy tender care:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

May we all your loved ones be,
All one holy family,
Loving for the love of Thee:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

IV. Jesus, Whelmed in Fears Unknown - Matthew 27:46

Jesus, whelmed in fears unknown,
With our evil left alone,
While no light from heaven is shown:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

When we vainly seem to pray
And our hope seems far away,
In the darkness be our stay:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

Though no Father seem to hear,
Though no light our spirits cheer,
Tell our faith that God is near:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

V. Jesus, in Your Thirst and Pain  John 19:28

Jesus, in your thirst and pain,
While your wounds your lifeblood drain,
Thirsting more our love to gain:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

Thirst for us in mercy still;
All Thy holy work fulfil
Satisfy Thy loving will:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

May we thirst Thy love to know;
Lead us in our sin and woe
Where the healing waters flow:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

VI. Jesus, All Our Ransom Paid  John 19:30

Jesus, all our ransom paid,
All Thy Father's will obeyed;
By Thy sufferings perfect made:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

Save us in our soul's distress;
Be our help to cheer and bless
While we grow in holiness:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

Brighten all our heavenward way
With an ever holier ray
Till we pass to perfect day:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

VII. Jesus, All Your Labor Vast  Luke 23:46

Jesus, all your labor vast,
All your woe and conflict past,
Yielding up your soul at last:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

In in death our souls may cower,
Guard us from the tempter's power,
Keep us in that trial hour:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

May Thy life and death supply
Grace to live and grace to die,
Grace to reach the home on high:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

Additional Information

Composer: Swedish melody

Includes Wide Format PowerPoint file!

Updated Format! Beginning in November of 2016, we changed the way we formatted our PowerPoint files. The font is larger and the staff lines are bolder, making the songs easier to read from a greater distance, including smaller screens/monitors in the rear of the sanctuary.

All songs digitized previous to that date are in the "older" format.
