1 In the hour of trial,
Jesus, plead for me;
lest by base denial
I depart from thee;
when thou seest me waver,
with a look recall,
nor for fear or favor
suffer me to fall.

2 With its witching pleasures
would this vain world charm,
or its sordid treasures
spread to work me harm,
bring to my remembrance
sad Gethsemane,
or, in darker semblance,
cross-crowned Calvary.

3 If with sore affliction
thou in love chastise,
pour thy benediction
on the sacrifice;
then, upon thine altar
freely offered up,
though the flesh may falter,
faith shall drink the cup.

4 When in dust and ashes
to the grave I sink,
while heav'n's glory flashes
o'er the shelving brink,
on thy truth relying
through that mortal strife,
Lord, receive me, dying,
to eternal life.
