Language: French

Ah! ne repousse pas mon âme pécheresse
Entends mes cris et vois mon repentir.
A mon aide Seigneur hâte-toi d'accourir
Et prends pitié de ma détresse!
De la justice vengeresse
Détourne les coups, mon Sauveur!
O Divin Rédempteur!
Pardonne à ma faiblesse,
Dans le secret des nuits je répandrai mes pleurs
Je meurtrirai ma chair sous le poids du cilice
Et mon coeur altéré du sanglant sacrifice
Bénira de ta main les clémentes rigueurs.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it and, despite my best efforts, this project has never received public funding. It is supported financially by roughly 0.013% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
