Representative Text

1 Blessed Jesus, God's own child!
Gentle Jesus, meek and mild,
Great Thy beauty, great Thy love,
Holy Jesus, Heav'nly Dove.

Chorus:
Jesus, dear Jesus,
In joyful lays we give Thee praise;
Jesus, dear Jesus,
Thy children we would be.

2 Own me, Jesus, I am Thine;
Let Thy love within me shine;
Help me to be free from sin,
Pure without and pure within. [Chorus]

3 Heav'nly Guardian of my heart,
May I from Thee never part;
Precious Lover of my soul,
Keep my life in Thy control. [Chorus]
