Representative Text

1 O blessed Jesus, O Saviour divine,
Joy! what a joy! I feel thou art mine;
Flowers are bright, but fairer art thou,
Fairer than all things, blessed just now.

Praise him, O praise him,
Praise him with gladness all the day long;
Praise him, O praise him, Saviour divine,
Praise him with gladness, dear Saviour mine.

2 Praise him, O praise him, he found me when lost,
Out on the sea by rude tempests tossed;
O bless his name! he brought me to shore;
Praise him, O praise him, praise evermore. [Refrain]

3 Robed in the garments of sin and of shame,
Now clothed in white, oh, bless ye his name;
Jesus himself my spirit has crowned,
All things rejoice, the lost one is found. [Refrain]

4 Oh, I rejoice, and I sing and I pray,
Jesus has turned my nights into day,
Sweetens my cup and hushes the strife,
Helps me to bear the sorrows of life. [Refrain]
