Jesus My Lord! Behold at length the time

Lyrics and Translation:

1.-Jesus, my Lord!
Behold at length the time
When I resolve
To turn away from crime.

Oh, Pardon me, Jesus:
Thy mercy I implore;
I will never more offend Thee (Bis)

No, Never More.

2.-Since my poor soul,
Thy precious blood has cost
Suffer it not
Forever to be lost.


3.- Kneeling in tears,
Behold me at Thy feet,
Like Magdalene,
Forgiveness I entreat.
