Jesus in thy dying woes, even while thy life blood flows,
craving pardon for thy foes....Hear us Holy Jesus.

May our hearts to thee incline, looking from our cross to thine
cheer our souls with hope divine:....
Hear us Holy Jesus

When we seem in vain to pray and our hope seems far away,
In the darkness be our stay.....
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

Brighten all our heav'n ward way, with an ever holier ray
til we pass to perfect day
Hear us holy Jesus

May thy life and death supply, grace to live and grace to die,
grace to reach our home on high
Hear us holy Jesus
Hear us holy Jesus

Hear us...... Ah------Ah------

Beautiful intro. Sweeping, majestic, haunting soundscape. Gentle but powerful vocal. Somebody worked really hard on this arrangement. Ever so beautiful. Love the ending!

Really beautiful music!! Very spiritual and compelling! Production/vocals/instrumentation all sound completely pro!!
