Description

SATB a cappella. The perennial Renaissance favorite, attributed in some sources to the mysterious "Hilton."  This is the version with the bass solo entrance and the (beautiful) Amens at the end. We also have an SAB version for smaller choirs.

Lord, for thy tender mercy’s sake,
Lay not our sins to our charge.
But forgive that is past,
And give us grace to amend our sinful lives.
To decline from sin, and incline to virtue,
That we may walk in a perfect heart,
Before thee now and evermore.
Amen.

Text from J. Bull's Christian Prayers and Holie Meditations
