Hymn/Song Information

Jesus is our God and Saviour




Jesus is our God and Saviour,
Guide, and Counsellor, and Friend;
Bearing all our misbehaviour,
Kind and loving to the end.


Trust him; he will not deceive is,
Though we hardly of him deem;
He will never, never leave us.
Nor will let us turn from him.


View him in the doleful garden,
View him on the bloody tree,
Dearly purchasing a pardon,
For his people full and free.


View him now in heaven sitting,
Interceding for us there;
Not a moment intermitting,
His compassion and his care.


Nothing but thy blood, O Jesus,
Can to sinners peace impart;
Nothing else from guilt release us,
Nothing else can melt the heart.


Law and terror do but harden,
All the while they work alone;
But a sense of blood-bought pardon,
Soon dissolves a heart of stone,


Jesus, all our consolations,
Flow from thee, the sovereign good;
Love and faith, and hope, and patience,
All are purchased by thy blood.


From thy fulness we receive them,
We have nothing of our own;
Freely thou delight’st to give them,
To the needy who have none.


May we, leaning on thy merit,
Go with faith to God in prayer;
May we, aided by thy Spirit,
Rise above all fear and care.


And if thou dost send affliction,
Quickly may our mournings cease;
may we conquer all dejection;
Keep us still in perfect peace.
