How do you feel today?    I feel ...

From needing danger to be good, From owing thee yesterday's tears today, From trusting so much to thy blood That in that hope we wound our souls away, From bribing thee with alms to excuse Some sin more burdenous, . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Lord, deliver us.
