1 Jesus, my Advocate above,
My Friend before the throne of love,
If now for me prevails Thy prayer,
If now I find Thee pleading there,--
2 If Thou the secret wish convey,
And sweetly prompt my heart to pray;--
Hear, and my weak petitions join,
Almighty Advocate, to Thine.
3 Jesus, my heart’s desire obtain;
My earnest suit present, and gain:
My fulness of corruption show;
The knowledge of myself bestow.
4 Save me from death; from hell set free;
Death, hell, are but the want of Thee:
My life, my only heaven Thou art;--
Oh, might I feel Thee in my heart!
