For Jesus' sake, 'tis thus we pray

Representative Text

1. "For Jesus' sake," 'tis thus we pray,
As humbly bowing day by day;
We ask for mercy, grace and love,
And peace which comes from heav'n above.

For Jesus' sake,
For Jesus' sake,
O, answer us for Jesus' sake,
O, answer us for Jesus' sake.

2. For Jesus' sake, O Lord, now bless
And comfort all in deep distress;
O shine upon us from on high,
And bring Thy saving mercy nigh. [Refrain]

3. For Jesus' sake, who gave his life
To save from sin and fear and strife;
His love, we sing it o'er and o'er,
And praise Him now and evermore. [Refrain]
