1. Jesus, Jesus, full of all compassion,
Hear Thy humble suppliant’s cry;
Let me know Thy great salvation,
See, I languish, faint and die.
2. Guilty, but with heart relenting,
Overwhelmed with helpless grief,
Prostrate at Thy feet repining,
Send, O send me quick relief.
3. Whither should a wretch be flying,
But to Him who comfort gives?
Whither, from the dread of dying,
But to Him who ever lives?
4. While I view Thee, wounded, grieving,
Breathless, on the cursèd tree,
Fain, I’d feel my heart believing,
That Thou sufferedst thus for me.
5. With Thy righteousness and Spirit,
I am more than angels blest;
Heir with Thee, all things inherit,
Peace, and joy, and endless rest.
6. Saved! The deed shall spread new glory
Through the shining realms above;
Angels sing the pleasing story,
All enraptured with Thy love.

Jesus, full of all compassion. D. Turner. [Lent.] Appeared in the Bristol Baptist Collection of Ash & Evans, 1769, No. 223, in 10 stanzas of 4 lines, headed "The Supplication," and signed "D. T." It was repeated in full in Rippon's Selection, 1787, No. 295; and again in later collections. It is in a large number of modern hymn-books in Great Britain and America, but usually in an abridged form. It is justly regarded as Turner's finest hymn.
