Lord Jesus, by Thy passion

Representative Text

1 Lord Jesus, by Thy Passion,
To Thee I make my prayer;
Thou Who in mercy smitest,
Have mercy, Lord, and spare.

2 Oh, wash me in the fountain
That floweth from Thy side!
Oh, clothe me in the raiment
Thy blood hath purified!

3 Oh, hold Thou up my goings,
And lead from strength to strength,
That unto Thee in Sion
I may appear at length!

4 Oh, hearken to my knocking,
And open wide the door,
That I may enter freely
And never leave Thee more!

5 Oh, bring me, loving Jesus,
To that most blessed place,
Where angels and archangels
Look ever on Thy face;

6 Where gladsome alleluias
Unceasingly resound;
Where martyrs, now triumphant,
Walk robed in white and crowned!

7 Oh, make my spirit worthy
To join that ransomed throng!
Oh, teach my lips to utter
That everlasting song!

8 Oh, give that last, best blessing,
That even saints can know,
To follow in Thy footsteps
Wherever Thou dost go!

9 Not wisdom, might, or glory,
I ask to win above;
I ask for Thee, Thee only,
O Thou eternal love!

From 1856 to 1857 he was the curate of St. Matthew in Thorpe Hamlet, Norfolk, and from 1857 to 1861 was the curate of St. Mary the Virgin, in Soho, London. For the remainder of his life he suffered from chronic illness and spent most of his time writing.
