Look on Us in Your Tender Love

Lord our God,
of might inconceivable,
of glory incomprehensible,
of mercy immeasurable,
of goodness unspeakable;
O Master, look down on us in your tender love,
and show us and those who pray with us
your rich mercy and compassion.

Original in Greek

Κύριε ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν,
οὗ τὸ κράτος ἀνείκαστον
καὶ ἡ δόξα ἀκατάληπτος·
οὗ τὸ ἔλεος ἀμέτρητον
καὶ ἡ φιλανθρωπία ἄφατος·
αὐτός, ∆έσποτα, κατὰ τὴν εὐσπλαγχνίαν σου, ἐπίβλεψον ἐφ’ ἡμᾶς
καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν ἅγιον οἶκον τοῦτον,
καὶ ποίησον μεθ’ ἡμῶν καὶ τῶν συνευχομένων ἡμῖν,
πλούσια τὰ ἐλέη σου καὶ τοὺς οἰκτιρμούς σου.
