about

Metanoia is dedicated to Ion Sterpan, who felt the weight of holy wrath stronger than anyone.

lyrics

I beseech thee for grace
I cry out with covered face
Sleepless lamentation neath the morning star
Against thee have I sinned
Gone astray and sown the wind
Mine iniquities before me ever are

Why dost thou hold out Christ,
And deny us paradise?
Who can stand before the righteous uncondemned?
Born into Adam’s seed
Into filth and desperate need
And no pow’r of will with which my soul to mend

By my works I must fail
Only reprobation’s wail
Can I offer now thy mercy to arouse
Christ for his chosen hath
Borne the weight of holy wrath
How then shall my soul be one that he avows?

Take thou heed, o my soul
He may render yet thee whole
In no other mayest thou thyself betrust
Thou art stone, thou art cold
Yet for thy sake be thou bold
And descry that faith by which shall live the just
