The Holy Mass

The Holy Mass


Lord, I deserve Thee not, I sigh,

Here kneeling on the floor;

Oh, I deserve Thee not, my Lord,

And yet I need Thee sore;

And that is well, for here Thou come

A-knocking at my door.


Thou come to give Thy Life to me

That I Thy life might live;

Thou come to give it freely, Lord,

That I might freely give;

And, Lord, Thou come to heal my sin

That I, too, might forgive.


Oh, I deserve it not, my Lord,

Thy grace and mercy free;

And I full might have run in shame,

Yes, dearest Lord, from Thee,

Did I not know Thou come because

Thou wants to be with me.

By Kathleen Major, Parishioner, St. Mary, Walsenburg
