1 Thou Lamb of God, Thou Prince of Peace,
For Thee my thirsty soul doth pine;
My longing heart implores Thy grace;
O make me in Thy likeness shine!
2 With fraudless, even, humble mind,
Thy will in all things may I see;
In love be every wish resigned,
And hallowed my whole heart to Thee.
3 When pain o'er my weak flesh prevails,
With lamb-like patience arm my breast;
When grief my wounded soul assails,
In lowly meekness may I rest.
4 Close by Thy side still may I keep,
Howe'er life's various current flow;
With steadfast eye mark every step,
And follow Thee where'er Thou go.
5 Thou, Lord, the dreadful fight hast won;
Alone Thou hast the winepress trod;
In me Thy strengthening grace be shown;
O may I conquer through Thy blood!
6 So, when on Zion Thou shalt stand,
And all heaven's host adore their King,
Shall I be found at Thy right hand,
And free from pain Thy glories sing.
