Representative Text

1 Jesus, the Holy One,
Thou art for me;
Long ere the world began,
Thou wert for me.
Long begore Adam’s fall
Bound me in sin’s dark thrall,
Maker and Lord of all,
Thou wert for me.

2 God of eternity,
Thou art for me;
Fountain of Majesty,
Thou art for me.
Thou who hast boundless pow’r,
Living forevermore;
Thou whom heav’ns’ hosts adore,
Thou art for me.

3 Jesus, Devoted One,
Thou wert for me;
Sin-bearer, Smitten One,
Thou wert for me.
Shedding Thy precious blood,
Sinking in death’s dark flood,
Bearing the wrath of God,
Thou wert for me.

4 Jesus, Triumphant One,
Thou art for me;
Mighty One—Risen One,
Thou art for me.
Spoiled are the pow’rs of hell,
Vanquished the terrible—
Thou hast done all things well,
Thou art for me.
