Representative Text

1 Jesus the meek and lowly
Dwelleth in light on high;
Blessed is he and holy,
Ruler of earth and sky.

Ev’ry knee to him shall bow,
Ev’ry creature and tongue confess
That he is the Lord, the mighty Lord,
Bearing the sceptre of righteousness.

2 He who, despised, afflicted,
Carried our weight of sin,
Opens the gates of glory,
Welcomes the faithful in. [Refrain]

3 He who, alone, in sorrow,
Prayed at the midnight hour,
Weareth a crown eternal
Won by his conqu’ring power. [Refrain]

4 He is the Rock of Ages,
Rock where the soul may hide,
Safe from the storm and tempest,
Over life’s rolling tide. [Refrain]
