JESUS OUR LIVING HEAD




Our heavenly Father calls,
And Christ invites us near;
With both our friendship shall be sweet,
And our communion dear.


God pities all our griefs;
He pardons every day;
Almighty to protect our souls,
And wise to guide our way.


How large His bounties are!
What various stores of good,
Diffused from my Redeemer’s hand,
And purchased with His blood!


Jesus, our living Head,
We bless Thy faithful care;
Our Advocate before the throne,
And our Forerunner there.


Here fix, my roving heart,
Here wait, my warmest love,
Till the communion be complete,
In nobler scenes above.


---Alternative verses---


God pities all my griefs;
He pardons every day;
Almighty to protect my soul,
And wise to guide my way.


Jesus, my living Head,
I bless Thy faithful care;
Mine Advocate before the throne,
And my Forerunner there.
