7581. Wherefore, O Father

1. Wherefore, O Father, we Thy humble servants
Here bring before Thee Christ, Thy well belovèd,
All perfect offering, sacrifice immortal,
Spotless oblation.

2. See now Thy children, making intercession
Through Him our Savior, Son of God incarnate,
For all Thy people, living and departed,
Pleading before Thee.
