285. Jesus, Lord, Redeemer

1 Jesus, Lord, Redeemer,
Once for sinners slain,
Crucified in weakness,
Raised in pow'r to reign,
Dwelling with the Father,
Endless in your days,
Unto youe be glory,
Honor, blessing, praise.

2 Faithful ones, communing,
Toward the close of day,
Desolate and weary,
Met you in the way.
So, when sun is setting,
Come to us, and show
All the truth, and in us
Make our hearts to glow.

3 In the upper chamber,
Where the ten, in fear,
Gathered sad and troubled,
There you did appear.
So, O Lord, this evening,
Bid our sorrow cease;
Breathing on us, Saviour,
Say, "I give you peace."
