Jesus, Lord of life and glory


Jesus, Lord of life and glory,
bend from heaven thy gracious ear;
while our waiting souls adore thee,
friend of helpless sinners, hear:
Refrain:
by thy mercy,
O deliver us, good Lord.


From the depth of nature's blindness,
from the hardening power of sin,
from all malice and unkindness,
from the pride that lurks within,
Refrain:
by thy mercy,
O deliver us, good Lord.


When temptation sorely presses,
in the day of Satan's power,
in our times of deep distresses,
in each dark and trying hour,
Refrain:
by thy mercy,
O deliver us, good Lord.


When the world around is smiling,
in the time of wealth and ease,
earthly joys our hearts beguiling,
in the day of health and peace,
Refrain:
by thy mercy,
O deliver us, good Lord.


In the weary hours of sickness,
in the times of grief and pain,
when we feel our mortal weakness,
when all human help is vain,
Refrain:
by thy mercy,
O deliver us, good Lord.


In the solemn hour of dying,
in the awful judgment day,
may our souls, on thee relying,
find thee still our Rock and Stay;
Refrain:
by thy mercy,
O deliver us, good Lord.
