Description:
This is one of my favorite pieces. I usually play a very similar arrangement for piano, but I found this for organ and decided to play it this morning. I should have recorded it then as I think the transitions were better, but whatever the case, this is what came out tonight. I merged a few ideas from the piano piece and this is what the end result was.

The piece rearranges and omits some of the choral parts, here is how it is arranged by Robert W. Thygerson and Gilbert Martin.

O divine Redeemer, O divine Redeemer!
I pray thee grant me pardon, And remember not
Remember not my sins!
Forgive me!

O divine Redeemer! O divine Redeemer!
I pray Thee, grant me pardon, and remember not
Remember not, O Lord, my sins!

Night gathers round my soul
Fearful, I cry to Thee,
Come to mine aid, O Lord!
Haste Thee, Lord, haste to help me!

Hear my cry, hear my cry
Save me, Lord in Thy mercy;
Hear my cry, hear my cry!
Come and save me, O Lord!

O divine Redeemer! O divine Redeemer!
I pray Thee, grant me pardon, and remember not
Remember not, O Lord, my sins!

(this arrangement didn't have all the syllables for this verse)
Safe in the day of retribution
From death shield Thou me, O my God!
O divine Redeemer, have mercy!
Help me Savior!
