Lord Jesus, by Thy passion

Full 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!
