77. I Greet Thee, Who My Sure Redeemer Art

1 I greet thee, who my sure Redeemer art,
my only trust and Saviour of my heart,
who pain didst undergo for my poor sake;
I pray thee from our hearts all cares to take.

2 Thou art the King of mercy and of grace,
reigning omnipotent in ev'ry place:
so come, O King, and our whole being sway;
shine on us with the light of thy pure day.

3 Thou art the life, by which alone we live
and all our substance and our strength receive;
comfort us by thy faith and by thy power,
nor daunt our hearts when come the trying hour.

4 Thou hast the true and perfect gentleness,
thou hast no harshness and no bitterness:
make us to taste the sweet grace found in thee,
and ever stay in thy sweet unity.

5 Our hope is in no other save in thee;
our faith is built upon thy promise free;
come, give us peace, make us so strong and sure,
that we may conquerors be and ills endure.
