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.

Refrain:
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]
