Hymn/Song Information

Jesu my strength my hope On Thee I




Jesus, my Strength, my Hope,
On Thee I cast my care,
With humble confidence look up,
And know Thou hearíst my prayer.
Give me on Thee to wait
Till I can all things do;
On Thee, almighty to create,
Almighty to renew.


I want a sober mind,
A self-renouncing will,
That tramples down and casts behind
The baits of pleasing ill;
A soul inured to pain,
To hardship, grief, and loss,
Bold to take up, firm to sustain
The consecrated cross.


I want a godly fear,
A quick discerning eye
That looks to Thee when sin is near
And sees the tempter fly;
A spirit still prepared
And armed with jealous care,
Forever standing on its guard
And watching unto prayer.


I want with all my heart
Thy pleasure to fulfil,
To know thyself, and what Thou art,
And what Thy perfect will
This blessing, above all,
Always to pray, I want,
Out of the deep on Thee to call,
And never, never faint.


I want a true regard,
A single, steady aim,
Unmoved by threatíning or reward
To Thee and Thy great Name.
A jealous, just concern
For Thine immortal praise;
A pure desire that all may learn
And glorify Thy grace.


I rest upon Thy Word;
The promise is for me;
My comfort and salvation, Lord,
Shall surely come from Thee.
But let me still abide,
Nor from my hope remove,
Till Thou my patient spirit guide
Into Thy perfect love.

Jesu, my Strength, my Hope,
On Thee I cast my care,
With humble confidence look up,
And know Thou hearíst my prayer.
Give me on Thee to wait
Till I can all things do;
On Thee, almighty to create,
Almighty to renew.


I want a heart to pray,
To pray and never cease,
Never to murmur at Thy stay,
Or wish my sufferings less.
This blessing, above all,
Always to pray, I want,
Out of the deep on Thee to call,
And never, never faint.
