Who is, Jesus blestAuthor: Matthias Loy

1 Who is, Jesus blest,
Like to thee, sweet Rest!
From the multitude elected,
Life of those who were rejected,
Light, too, brightest, best,
Jesus, dearest Rest!
2 Life, who me to save
Enteredst the grave!
For my sins of death hast tasted
All the realms of hell hast wasted,
Life who me to save,
Didst hell's fury brave.
3 Majesty most dear,
Mightiest King and Seer,
I will kiss Thy scepter holy,
At Thy feet will sit me lowly,
And like Mary hear;
Majesty most dear!
4 By Thy Spirit's rays
Let me know Thy praise;
Thine by faith, may I ne'er perish;
Warm love may I always cherish,
Thine through all my days,
Thou, my beauteous Praise!
5 When the billows' might,
In the gloomy night,
With o'erwhelming weight would wreck me,
Savior, let Thy hand protect me;
Keep me by Thy might,
Guardian of the night.
6 And when death's at hand,
Lord, then let me stand:
Through death's shadows gently bear me,
And for light of bliss prepare me,
That I there may stand,
Lord, at Thy right hand.
