1 Jesu, meek and lowly,
Saviour, pure and holy,
On thy love relying
Hear me humbly crying.

2 Prince of life and power,
My salvation’s tower,
On the Cross I view thee
Calling sinners to thee.

3 There behold me gazing
At the sight amazing;
Bending low before thee,
Helpless, I adore thee.

4 By thy red wounds streaming,
With thy life-blood gleaming,
Blood for sinners flowing
Pardon free bestowing;

5 By that fount of blessing,
Thy dear love expressing,
All my aching sadness
Turn thou into gladness.

6 Lord in mercy guide me,
Be thou e’er beside me;
In thy ways direct me,
’Neath thy wings protect me.
