Representative Text

1. Lord Jesus, thou art mine;
I need thee day by day.
Thou art my friend, my guide divine,
To lead me on my way.

2. Lord Jesus, thou art mine;
I need thy strength and power.
Thou art the vine, I am the branch;
Protect me every hour.

3. Lord Jesus, thou art mine;
I need thy saving grace.
O let thy face upon me shine
Until my dying days.

4. Lord Jesus, thou art mine;
I need thy tender love,
For thou art mine, and I am thine,
Here and at home above.
