To thee, Lord Jesus, thanks we give

Representative Text

1 Lord Jesus, we give thanks to Thee
That Thou hast died to set us free;
Made righteous thro' Thy precious blood,
We now are reconciled to God.

2 By virtue of Thy wounds we pray,
True God and Man, be Thou our Stay,
Our Comfort when we yield our breath,
Our Rescue from eternal death.

3 Defend us, Lord, from sin and shame;
Help us by Thine almighty name
To bear our crosses patiently
Consoled by Thy great agony.

4 And thus the full assurance gain
That Thou to us wilt true remain
And not forsake us in our strife
Until we enter into life.

Amen.
