198. I greet you my Redeemer sure, who lives

1 I greet you my Redeemer sure, who lives
my only trust, who our salvation gives,
who pain did undergo for my poor sake;
I pray you from our hearts all cares to take.

2 You are the King of mercy and of grace,
reigning omnipotent in every place:
so come, our King, and our whole being sway;
shine on us with the light of your pure day.

3 You are the life by which alone we live
and all our substance and our strength receive;
sustain us by your faith and by your power,
and give us strength in every trying hour.

4 You have the true and perfect gentleness,
no harshness have you and no bitterness:
O grant to us to live before your face
that we may dwell united in your grace.

5 Our hope is in no other save in you;
our faith is built upon your promise true;
Lord, give us peace, and make us calm and sure,
that in your strength we evermore endure.
