For Lenten Music from the East
This is based, in part, on Psalm 141,
Lord, I have cried unto Thee, hearken unto me, hearken unto me, Lord I have cried unto Thee, Hearken unto me, attend to the voice of my supplication, when I cry unto Thee, hearken unto me O Lord.
Let my prayer be set forth as incense before Thee, the lifting up of my hands as an evening sacrifice, hearken unto me O Lord.
Set O Lord and watch me before my mouth and a door of enclosure round about my lips.
Incline not my heart unto words of evil to make excuse with excuses in sins.
With men that work in iniquity and I will not join with their chosen.
The righteous man will chasten me with mercy and reprove me as for the oil of the sinner, let it not anoint my head.
