Give me strength revenge to take upon myself
Give me strength revenge to take upon myself;
your will I’ve offended with my great sins.
But if I fail, wreak vengeance on my flesh,
my soul unharmed, that’s in your likeness made.
Faith, above all, unwavering must be,
and hope must never tremble; charity
then will not fail me, if these two are firm.
Turn a deaf ear to my pleas for the flesh.
