Look, O Lord, and see our disgrace;
See what we’ve become in this vile place.
We’ve given away the riches you gave,
Because of our sins we now face the grave.
We are like children without a home;
We’re lost in the dark, doomed to roam.
We have been blinded by the evil lies,
In your mercy please hear our cries.
Lord, the evil we see we did produce;
For our selfish deeds we’ve no excuse.
You have revealed to us our many sins,
We plead now, in your mercy, forgive them.
Our Lord heard our pleas and granted mercy.
His suffering and death has set us free.
He is our sacrifice, He has paid the debt.
And in Him we live free from Satan’s threat.
