Representative Text

1 Love of Jesus, love that suffered,
All our pride for Thee is dead;
Birth and fortune, virtue, learning,
Thou our glory these instead.

Glory, joy, and strength, and safety,
All in all in Thee we find;
Alleluia! We are victors;
We to Christ the Lord are joined.

2 Will of Jesus, will so holy,
Speak and master all our way;
And of joys this will be chiefest,
Just to hear Thee and obey. [Refrain]

3 Strength of Jesus, strength abounding,
Sap of life to dying men;
We are withered, we are fruitless,
But in thee made live again. [Refrain]

4 Cross of Jesus, Jesus risen,
All our faith on Thee we stay;
Thou our pardon at the judgment,
Thou our safety on life’s way. [Refrain]
