Lenten Hymns – Psali Adam on the 3rd Hoos – I Remembered The Sins

Psali Adam on the 3rd Hoos

I remembered the sins, of my ignorance, I cast off my tears, and sat down and cried.
All the sighing, of my chest, (are) burning like fire, in my heart.

The darkness of my mind, I have followed, The commandment of Jesus, I have abandoned.
All the evil conduct, of my nature, I have followed, without hope.

Therefore I, have collapsed, like the house, that is built on sand.
The heavenly beings, but also the earthly, were perplexed because of my sins, as I have become mire.

Behold I see, that my soul is lifeless, and placed in a tomb, like the dead.
Gather my brethren, and cry out with me, until the end of time, for I have fallen.

Egypt is shining, with the oil of prayer, and tearful supplications, in the night.
For You have snatched me, unless I become humiliated, I who have fallen, among the thieves.

The instinct of sin, uproot from my heart, and also O Lord, my heart’s ignorant thoughts.
Grant unto me, spiritual wisdom, and vitality, in my prayer.

That I may be fervent, in the wisdom of speech, and be in fellowship, after the enmity.
My Master You know, that my instincts, lean towards the ignorance, of this world.

Woe unto me, if You count my affliction, for great disgrace will fall, upon my weak spirit.
Lord remit, the afflictions, of my nature, and the weaknesses of my flesh.

Incline Your ear, quickly to my weakness, as You have accepted, the prayer of the publican.
Save me O Lover, of mankind, for my instincts have sunk, in the terrors of this world.

We ask you, O Great King, to remember Your servant, in Your Kingdom.
Behold a thief, had declared that to You, and You visited him O Lord, with Your mercy and salvation.

Yours is the honor, Yours is the majesty, O Creator, of heaven and earth.
Forgive me hastily, that I may rest, for my wickedness and cruelty, are weighty upon me.

Make me worthy, of the Flesh of Your Son, to renew me, in what pleases Him.
Shepherd, and Redeemer, seek Your lamb, I the lost.

Lyrics for Oh Beloved

1- Oh beloved, oh beloved; nailed unto the cross for me
O what sin hast Thou committed; Thou who callest all to be.
Oh beloved, wish that I could; spend the rest of life with Thee
Worshipping Thine holy passion, crucifying the flesh for Thee.

2- Daughter of Zion behold Me; stricken and smitten for Thee
Friend and kin, me have forsaken; there is none to comfort me.
All alone I’ll tread the winepress, all alone I’ll drink the cup
Shedding my blood for Thee to ransom, and my flesh for Thee to sup.

3- I was bound, and I was smitten, and they did spit in my face.
I was stripped, and I was scourged, I was condemned in your place.
Your sins became my crown of thorns; Oh that you would understand
Everytime you sin a new, it’s one more nail in my hand.

4- Like a lamb brought to the slaughter, like a dumb sheep to be sheered.
King, Creator, Lord, and Master, by His creatures, mocked and jeered.
Despised, rejected, with grief acquainted, and of men was not esteemed.
Bruised and wounded, sore afflicted, yet, with His stripes we were healed.

5- Lord create in us a fountain; that with tears will ever flow.
And a heart contrite and broken, and the spirit within renew.
Oh that we could shed the tears over Thy feet pierced and bruised
Oh that we always remember, for our sins Thou wert abused.
