HOLY JESUS SAVIOUR MILD




Gentle Jesus, meek and mild,
look upon a little child;
pity my simplicity,
suffer me to come to thee.


Fain I would to thee be brought,
dearest God, forbid it not;
give me, dearest God, a place
in the kingdom of thy grace.


Lamb of God, I look to thee;
thou shalt my example be;
thou art gentle, meek, and mild;
thou wast once a little child.


Lord I would be as thou art;
give me thine obedient heart;
thou art pitiful and kind,
let me have thy loving mind.


Let me, above all, fulfill
God my heavenly Father's will;
never his good Spirit grieve;
only to his glory live.


Thou didst live to God alone;
thou didst never seek thine own;
thou thyself didst never please:
God was all thy happiness.


Loving Jesus, gentle Lamb,
in thy gracious hands I am;
make me, Savior, what thou art,
live thyself within my heart.


I shall then show forth thy praise,
serve thee all my happy days;
then the world shall always see
Christ, the holy Child, in me.


---Alternative verses---


Fain I would be as Thou art;
Give me Thy obedient heart:
Thou art pitiful and kind;
Let me have Thy loving mind.
