O Jesus, Lord

Representative Text

1 O Jesus, Lord, Thou stoodest in my stead:
God’s holy wrath was poured upon Thy head;
For me Thou once wast numbered with the dead—
For me, O Lord, for me.

2 O Jesus, Lord, Thy blood has bro’t me nigh,
Has cleansed me from my sins of scarlet dye;
For me Thy blood was shed on Calvary—
For me, O Lord, for me.

3 O Jesus, Lord, unchanging is Thy love,
Thou liv’st for me at God’s right hand above;
Thy tender care for me I daily prove—
For me, O Lord, for me.

4 For me, O Lord, Thou hast done all things well;
Tho’ feebly here, Thy praise my voice shall swell
When tih Thee, Lord, I shall forever dwell—
With Thee, O Lord, with Thee.

5 O Jesus, Lord, in Thee may I confide,
In Thee in ev’ry storm and trouble hide,
And trust in Thee, whatever, Lord, betide,
In Thee, O Lord, in Thee.
