Hymn 401
O Lord, turn not away Thy face

1 O Lord, turn not away Thy face, From him that its prostrate, Lamenting sore his sinful life, Before Thy mercy gate. 2 Which gate Thou openest wide to those, That do lament their sin; Shut not that gate against me, Lord, But let me enter in. 3 And call me not to mine account, How I have lived here; For then I know right well , O Lord, How vile I shall appear. 4 So come I to Thy mercy-gate, Where mercy doth abound, Requiring mercy for my sin, To heal my deadly wound. 5 Mercy, good Lord , Mercy I ask, This is the total sum; For mercy , Lord is all my suit, Lord, let Thy mercy come.
