Thee Jesus Thee the sinner's Friend




Thee, Jesus, Thee, the sinnerís Friend.
I follow on to apprehend,
Renew the glorious strife;
Divinely confident and bold,
With faithís strong arm on Thee lay hold,
Thee, my eternal life.


Prisoner of hope. To Thee I turn,
And, calmly confident, I mourn,
And pray, and weep for Thee;
Tell me Thy love, Thy secret tell,
Thy mystic name in me reveal,
Reveal Thyself in me.


Descend, pass by me, and proclaim,
O Lord of hosts, Thy glorious nameó
The Lord, the gracious Lord,
Longsuffering, merciful, and kind;
The God who always bears in mind
His everlasting word.


Plenteous He is in truth and grace;
He wills that all the fallen race
Should turn, repent, and live;
His pardoning grace for all is free;
Transgression, sin, iniquity,
He freely doth forgive.


Mercy He doth for thousands keep;
He goes and seeks the one lost sheep,
And brings His wanderer home:
And every soul that sheep might be:
Come then, my Lord, and gather me,
My Jesus, quickly come!
