Hear us, O hear us, Lord; to Thee

  Hear us, O hear us, Lord; to Thee 
A sinner is more music, when he prays, 
  Than spheres’ or angels’ praises be, 
In panegyric alleluias ; 
              Hear us, for till Thou hear us, Lord, 
              We know not what to say ; 
Thine ear to our sighs, tears, thoughts, gives voice and word ; 
O Thou, who Satan heard’st in Job’s sick day, 
Hear Thyself now, for Thou in us dost pray.
