186. The Seven Words on the Cross: VII Jesus, All thy Labor Vast

Part VII
"Father, into Thy hands I commit My spirit"

1 Jesus, all Thy labor vast,
All Thy woe and conflict past,
Yielding up Thy soul at last:
Hear us, Holy Jesus.

2 When the death shades round us lower,
Guard us from the Tempter's power,
Keep us in that trial hour:
Hear us, Holy Jesus.

3 May Thy life and death supply
Grace to live and grace to die,
Grace to reach the home on high:
Hear us, Holy Jesus.

Amen.
