341. Jesu, all holy

1 Jesu, all holy,
gentle and lowly,
snow-white lily of the vale;
thou art our Master,
Monarch and Pastor,
Priest, Interceder,
Prophet and Leader,
Refuge, Defender,
loving and strong:
Sovran supernal,
Son of th'Eternal,
born of Mary-maiden, hail!
Fountain of gladness,
solace in sadness,
more than a brother,
father or mother,
to thee we render tribute of song.

2 Jesu, we bless thee,
worship, confess thee;
shepherd of the sheep thou art:
shelter, protect us,
tend and direct us,
strong of arm and kind of heart:
shadow and moonlight
turn into moonlight;
soften the scorner,
comfort the mourner,
rule our behavior, order our way:
bide with us, giving
grace to the living,
shrift to the dying
freely supplying,
be thou our Savior ever and aye.
