Jesus Help Us (Hymn for Close of Lesson)

Representative Text

1 Jesus, help us to remember
This sweet lesson from thy Word;
Write upon our hearts forever
Truths that we this day have heard.

2 Keep us, blessed Saviour, keep us,
Lest we wander from thy way;
Teach us, Holy Spirit, teach us
How to watch and how to pray.

3 All the week be near to bless us,
Bring us to thy house again;
Lord be with us, guard us, guide us,
For our Saviour's sake. Amen.
