Eli, Eli, what blessings thou hast given me,
When my saviour cried upon that tree,
Almighty God, Master of creation,
Thou hast chosen me for thy blessed nation.
Covered, covered, in atrocious sins from my past,
Now I am washed and am free at last,
Free at last to see the wonder around,
The beauty of perfection, it astounds.
Mercy, mercy, endlessly bestowed upon me,
Granted peace by thee, true serenity,
Distanced from the world by thy guidance,
I look to when I’ll join celestial ranks.
