Representative Text

1 Jesus, Who once for us did'st bleed,
We come before Thee in our need;
Teach us to love and serve Thee more,
And thy rich mercy full adore.

2 Oh may Thy cross and all its woe
Never us to conquer ev'ry foe,
Till in the greatness of Thy love,
Our souls rejoice in Heav'n above.

3 The hands which heal'd the sick, the blind,
Were nail'd for us that we may find
Comfort in sorrow, from Thy death,
Strength for our weakness, life and health.

4 Here would we lean upon Thy breast,
And find in thee a perfect res;
Wearied, our spirits sigh to know,
More of Thy matchless grace below.

5 Sweet is the thought that we shall spend
With Thee, our Saviour,Master, Friend,
A holy, glad eternity,
When form all sin and sorrow free.

6 Jesus, Who once for us did'st bleed,
We come before Thee in our need;
Teach us to love and serve thee more,
And thy rich mercy full adore.
