2 But they who have always resisted His grace

And on their own virtue depended,
Shall then be condemned and cast out from His face,
Eternally lost and unfriended.

Have mercy upon us, O Jesus!

3 O may we all hear when our Shepherd doth call,

In accents persuasive and tender,
That while there is time we make haste one and all
And find Him, our mighty defender.
Have mercy upon us, O Jesus!

6 All trials are then like a dream that is past,

Forgotten all trouble and sorrow;
Allquestions and doubts have been answered at last; :
Then dawneth eternity's morrow.
Have mercy upon us, O Jesus!

7 The heavens shall ring with an anthem more grand

Than ever on earth was recorded;
The blest of the Lord shall receive at His hand
The crown to the victors awarded.
Have mercy upon us, O Jesus!

M. B. Landstad 1861

Johann Walther, 1524

Though in midst of life we be,

Snares of death sur - round us:

Where shall we for suc - cor

flee,

Lest our foes con - found us? To

Thee a - lone, our Sav - ior! We mourn our grievous sin, which hath

sink.

In the deep and bit - ter flood: Have mer-cy, O Lord!

2 While in midst of death we be,

Hell's grim powers o'ertake us: Who from such distress will free,

Who secure will make us?
Thou only, Lord, canst do it!
It moves Thy tender heart to see
Our great sin and misery:
Holy and gracious God!

Holy and mighty God!
Holy and all-merciful Savior!

Thou eternal God!
Let not hell dismay us
With its deep and burning flood:

Have mercy, O Lord!

3 Into hell's fierce agony

Sin doth headlong drive us: Where shall we for succor flee,

Who, O who will hide us? Thou only, blesséd Savior; Thy precious blood was shed to win Peace and pardon for our sin:

Holy and gracious God!

Holy and mighty God!
Holy and all-merciful Savior!

Let us not, we pray,
From the true faith's comfort
Fall in our last need away.
Have mercy, O Lord!

M. Luther, 1524
