1 Ever blessed Jesus, listen unto me;
Bow Thine ear and hear me, while I call to Thee;
I am weak and sinful,Thou art pure and strong;
Take my hand dear Jesus, lead Thy child along.
Take my hand, dear Jesus, let me never stray;
Take my hand and lead me, in the better way.
2 Ever blessed Jesus, bless Thy wayward child,
Keep my feet from straying thro’ the desert wild;
I would never wander from Thy loving side;
Ever blessed Jesus, be my constant guide. [Refrain]
3 Help me, blessed Jesus, leave me not alone;
Give me strength and patience till each duty’s done;
And when life is ended, I Thy face would see;
Hear my prayer, dear Jesus, take me up to Thee. [Refrain]
