12. Jesus, My Helper

1 Jesus, my blessed Redeemer,
Helper, protector and keeper,
Shield me from every deceiver,
Help me to walk in thy way,
Walk with thy light shining o’er me,
Blameless and perfect before thee;
Help me to love and adore thee,
Serving thee truly each day.

2 I can do nothing without thee,
But with thy loving arms around me
Satan can never confound me,
Vict’ry shall ever be mine.
O I will trust thee forever,
And not forsake thee, no, never,
But I shall always endeavor
Fully my all to resign.

3 While in my soul I am singing,
Tightly to thee I am clinging,
Faith many blessings is bringing,
Causing me now to rejoice.
Thou all my burdens are bearing,
All of my troubles are sharing,
Soon I a crown shall be wearing,
If I give heed to thy voice.

4 Help me, O Savior most tender,
Faithful heart-service to render,
Fully, completely surrender
All that I have to thy will.
Thu shall thy love, freely flowing,
Deep in my bosom be glowing,
Ever expanding and growing,
In me thy purpose fulfil.
