1 Thy soul, O Jesus, hallow me,
Thy Spirit steep me all in Thee,
Thy body, pierc'd by ruthless steel,
My wretched soul and body heal.
2 The water from Thy side that poured,
For me a cleansing bath afford,
And all Thy blood, with life divine,
Revive this weakened heart of mine.
3 The sweat of death upon Thy face
Deliver me from death's embrace,
And all Thy Passion, cross, and pain,
With strength my feebleness sustain.
4 O Christ, turn not away from me,
Receive and hide me all in Thee,
Within Thy holy wounds enclose,
And keep me safe from all my foes.
5 In death's dark hour with me abide
And place me, Savior, at Thy side,
Where with Thy saints I shall adore
And praise Thee, Lord, forevermore.
