Holy Jesus, Fountain streaming

Full Text

1 Holy Jesus! Fountain streaming
Of holiness and grace redeeming,
As clear as crystal, pure and free:
Cherubim in robes of whiteness
And seraphim in all their brightness
Are darkness when compared with Thee;
Be Thou my pattern bright,
My glory and delight, Holy Savior!
O teach Thou me, that I may be
All pure and holy, like to Thee.

2 Gentle Jesus! self-denying,
And with Thy Father's will complying,
Yes, even unto death resigned:
Let me e'er, Thy way pursuing,
And pride and haughtiness subduing,
Be guided by Thy gentle mind;
Like Thee may I be mild
And gentle as a child,
Gentle Savior!
O teach Thou me, that I may be
Meek and obedient, like to Thee.

3 Loving Jesus! Thou my treasure,
Whose love to man no thought can measure,
Conform me to Thine image bright;
Send Thy Spirit, grace bestowing,
That I, in every virtue growing,
May ripen for the realms of light;
O draw me after Thee,
Forever Thine to be,
Loving Savior!
Thou givest rest to souls distressed,
And all who learn of Thee are blest.
