Jesus, the Son of God, who once

Representative Text

1 Jesus, the Son of God, who once
for us his life resign'd,
now lives in heav’n, our great High Priest,
and never-dying friend.
2 Through life, through death, let us to him
with constancy adhere;
faith shall supply new strength, and hope
shall banish ev’ry fear.

3 To human weakness not severe
is our High Priest above;
his heart o’erflows with tenderness,
his bowels melt with love.
4 With sympathetic feelings touch'd,
he knows our feeble frame;
he knows what sore temptations are,
for he has felt the same.

5 But though he felt temptation’s pow’r,
unconquer'd he remain'd;
nor, ‘midst the frailty of our frame,
by sin was ever stain'd.
6 As, in the days of feeble flesh,
he pour'd forth cries and tears;
so, though exalted, still he feels
what ev’ry Christian bears.

7 Then let us, with a filial heart,
come boldly to the throne
of grace supreme, to tell our griefs,
and all our wants make known:
8 That mercy we may there obtain
for sins and errors past,
and grace to help in time of need,
while days of trial last.
