HEAR, O THOU BOUNTEOUS MAKER, HEAR (HYMN)

07 Mar

– Lent –

Hear, O thou bounteous Maker, hear,

Our humble vows with gracious ear:

Turn not thy saving face away

Whilst on this solemn fast we pray.

 

Great searcher of our hearts, to thee

We here deplore our misery;

Behold, we to thy mercies fly,

Do thou thy healing grace apply.

– St Gregory the Great: Audi, Benigne Conditor (6th century)
