LYRICS:

Ah, turn me not away, receive me though unworthy. Hear Thou my cry, behold, Lord, my

distress! Answer me from Thy throne, haste Thee, Lord, to mine aid! Thy pity show in my deep

anguish! Let not the sword of vengeance smite me, though righteous Thine anger, O Lord!

Shield me in danger, O regard me! On Thee, Lord, alone will I call! Refrain: O divine Redeemer!

I pray Thee, grant me pardon and remember not my sins. Forgive me, O divine Redeemer! Night

gathers round my soul, fearful, I cry to Thee. Come to mine aid, O Lord! Haste Thee, Lord, haste

to help me. Hear my cry, save me, Lord, in Thy mercy. Refrain. Save in the day of retribution,

from death shield Thou me, O my God! O divine Redeemer, have mercy! Help me, my Savior!
