1 Bridegroom, Thou art mine,
Jesus, Lamb divine;
Saved from sin, to Thee I render
Thanks for love so pure and tender,
That has made me Thine,
Jesus, Lamb divine.
2 Very man and God,
Comfort 'neath the rod,
Thou wast born in woe to languish,
Rescuing souls from endless anguish
By Thy crimson blood,
Very man and God.
3 Let my faith's pure light
Not go out in night;
Pour on me the oil of gladness,
That amid earth's sin and sadness,
In me faith's pure light
Go not out in night.
4 Give to us Thy peace,
Thou who dost not cease
Warmly us to love who know Thee,
Bear Thy name, and honor show Thee:
Let our love not cease,
Give to us Thy peace.
5 Here through scorn and frown,
There the glorious crown;
Here in hoping and believing,
There in seeing and receiving;
After scorn and frown
comes the glorious crown.
6 Jesus, dearest Friend,
Help me to contend:
Make me o'er all foes victorious
Through Thy victory so glorious;
May I comprehend
How Thou dost contend.
7 Thou my Joy replete,
Sharon's Rose so sweet;
My desire and praise and treasure,
Naught shall move me but Thy pleasure,
Sharon's Rose so sweet,
Thou my Joy replete!
