Praise to You and Adoration

Representative Text

1 Praise to you and adoration,
Blessed Jesus, Son of God,
Who, to serve your own creation,
Came to share our flesh and blood.
Guide me that I never may
From your fold or pastures stray,
But with zeal and joy exceeding
Follow where your steps are leading.

2 Hold me ever in your keeping;
Comfort me in pain and strife.
In my laughter and my weeping
Be with me throughout my life.
Give me greater love for you,
And my faith and hope renew
In your birth, your life, and passion,
In your death and resurrection.
