Hear Our Prayer (The Litany Song)

1. When we come O Christ to Thee,
when we bow adoring knee
Hear our prayer, hear our cry!
By Thy victory and strife,
by the merits of your life
Hear our prayer, hear our cry!
Oh by all the pains and woe,
suffered once for man below
Listen to our cry -- hear our sacred litany!

2. By Thy helpless infant years,
By Thy life of want and tears
Hear our prayer, hear our cry!
By Thy days of sore distress,
in the savage wilderness
Hear our prayer, hear our cry!
By the dread mysterious hour,
(of the) insulting tempter's power
Listen to our cry -- hear our sacred litany!

3. By the sacred griefs that wept,
O'er the grave where Laz'rus slept
Hear our prayer, hear our cry!
By the boding tears which flowed,
over Salem's loved abode
Hear our prayer, hear our cry!
By Thy hour of dire despair,
By Thy agony of prayer
Listen to our cry -- hear our sacred litany!

4. By the gloom that veiled the skies,
Over dreadful sacrifice
Hear our prayer, hear our cry!
By the vault whose dark abode,
Held in vain the rising God
Hear our prayer, hear our cry!
O from earth to heav'n restored,
Mighty re-ascended Lord!
Listen to our cry -- hear our sacred litany!
