Representative Text

1 Jesu, Shepherd of the sheep,
Pity my unsettl'd soul!
Guide, and nourish me, and keep,
Till thy love shall make me whole:
Give me, perfect soundness give,
Make me stedfastly believe.

2 I am never at one stay:
Changing ev'ry hour I am:
But thou art, as yesterday,
Now and evermore the same;
Constancy to me impart,
'Stablish with thy grace my heart.

3 Lay thy weighty cross on me,
All my unbelief controul:
Till the rebel cease to be,
Keep him down within my soul:
That he never more may move,
Root and ground me fast in love.

4 Give me faith to hold me up,
Walking over life's rough sea;
Holy, purifying hope
Still my soul's sure anchor be:
That I may be always thine,
Perfect me in love divine.
