Attende Domine (Hearken, O Lord)

Mozarabic 10th Century Hymn of Praise

R: Attende Domine, et miserere, quia peccavimus tibi.

Ad te Rex summe, omnium redemptor, oculos nostros sublevamus
flentes: exaudi, Christe, supplicantum preces. R.

Dextera Patris, lapis angularis, via salutis, ianua caelestis,
ablue nostri maculas delicti. R.

Rogamus, Deus, tuam maiestatem: auribus sacris gemitus exaudi:
crimina nostra placidus indulge. R.

Tibi fatemur crimina admissa: contrito corde pandimus occulta: tua
Redemptor, pietas ignoscat. R.

Innocens captus, nec repugnans ductus, testibus falsis pro impiis
damnatus: quos redemisti, tu conserva, Christe. R.


R: Hearken, O Lord, and have mercy, for we have sinned against

Crying, we raise our eyes to Thee, Sovereign King, Redeemer of
all. Listen, Christ, to the pleas of the supplicant sinners. R.

Thou art at the Right Hand of God the Father, the Keystone, the
Way of salvation and Gate of Heaven, cleanse the stains of our
sins. R.

O God, we beseech Thy majesty to hear our groans; to forgive our
sins. R.

We confess to Thee our consented sins; we declare our hidden sins
with contrite heart; in Thy mercy, O Redeemer, forgive them. R.

Thou wert captured, being innocent; brought about without
resistance, condemned by impious men with false witnesses. O
Christ keep safe those whom Thou hast redeemed. R.
