MY JESUS AND MY GOD




Dearest of all the names above,
My Jesus, and my God,
Who can resist thy heavenly love,
Or trifle with thy blood?


Tis by the merits of thy death
The Father smiles again;
'Tis by thine interceding breath
The Spirit dwells with men.


Till God in human flesh I see,
My thoughts no comfort find;
The holy, just, and sacred Three
Are terrors to my mind.


But if Immanuel's face appear,
My hope, my joy begins;
His name forbids my slavish fear,
His grace removes my sins.


While Jews on their own law rely,
And Greeks of wisdom boast,
I love the incarnate mystery,
And there I fix my trust.


---Alternative verses---


Tis through the merit of thy death
The Father smiles again;
'Tis through thy interceding breath
The Spirit dwells with men.


Till God in human form I see,
My thoughts no comfort find;
The holy, just, and sacred Three
Are terror to my mind.
