Representative Text

1 Blessed Jesus! thee we sing;
Thou of life, the eternal spring;
Thou art worthy, thou alone;
Thou the Rock and Corner-Stone.

2 ’Tis from thee salvation flows;
This the ransomed sinner knows.
Thou, O Christ, art all his plea,
When he sees his poverty.

3 None shall glory in thy sight
Of their labours e’er so bright;
All who are taught by thee shall know,
Living faith from God must flow.

4 Grace shall be our lovely theme;
Free redemption, glorious scheme!
This will be the song above:
Praise to Jesus’ bleeding love.
