1. Hear our Prayer, Lord. Let our cry for help come to Thee.
We are ashes, and our cup is filled with tears.
O, Lord! Do not hide your face from us. Lift this agony.
We're all alone. O Lord, we need You near.
2. Lord, we wither. We are like the evening shadow.
Lord, Your mercy would reveal throughout the years,
to all future generations a people not yet born
that You are Lord. Your love is ever near.
3. Be it written for all future generations:
all else passes, but our God remains the same.
O, Lord source of all creation! God, You alone endure.
Be with us as we call upon Your name.
