O Jesus, Thou Art Standing

Sometimes a light surprises

O Jesus! Lord most merciful

O Jesus! Lord most merciful,
Low at thy cross I lie;
O sinner's Friend, most pitiful,
Hear my bewailing cry.
I come to thee with mourning,
I come to thee in woe;
With contrite heart returning,
And tears that overflow.
