Lord of mercy and of might,
of mankind the life and light,

Lord of mercy and of might,
of mankind the life and light,
Maker, Teacher, infinite;
Jesus, hear and save!

Who, when sin's primeval doom
gave creation to the tomb,
didst not scorn a Virgin's womb,
Jesus, hear and save!

Strong Creator, Savior mild,
humbled to a mortal child,
captive, beaten, bound, reviled;
Jesus, hear and save!

Throned above celestial things,
borne aloft on angels' wings,
Lord of lords and King of kings;
Jesus, hear and save!

Soon to come to earth again,
judge of angels and of men,
hear us now, and hear us then;
Jesus, hear and save!

~ Reginald Heber
