1 When temptation lays me low,
Filled with deepest grief I go
To the One who loves me so—
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!

Let me love thee more and more
Than I ever have before—
Sing Thy praises o’er and o’er—
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!

2 For He pardons all my sins—
Makes me pure without, within;
Gives me grace the fight to win—
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus! [Refrain]

3 Tho’ I wander far away,
Lost amid the bitter fray,
He will ever be my stay—
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus! [Refrain]

4 Overcome, by sin oppressed,
Faint and weak and sore distressed,
He will ever be my Rest—
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus! [Refrain]

5 When I reach the other shore,
Meet the dear ones gone before,
I shall praise Him evermore—
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus! [Refrain]
