Blessed Jesus, Keep Me White

Representative Text

1 Blessed Jesus, Thou art mine,
All I have is wholly Thine;
Thou dost dwell within my heart,
Make me clean in every part.

Refrain:
Blessed Jesus, keep me white,
Keep me walking in the light,
All I have is wholly Thine,
Blessed Jesus, Thou art mine.

2 I am safe within the fold,
All my cares on Thee are rolled;
I enjoy the sweetest rest,
For I’m leaning on Thy breast. [Refrain]

3 Precious Jesus, day by day,
Keep me in the holy way;
Keep my mind in perfect peace,
Every day my faith increase. [Refrain]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >

Notes

Since a version of this text appeared in print at least as early as 1876, when Bilhorn was about eleven years old, and nine years before his copyright claim, it seems clear he adapted another writer's work.
