Lyrics

Jesus, Son of God most high,
God from all eternity,
Born as man to live and die,
Hear us, holy Je­sus.

Leaving Thine eter­nal throne,
Making mortal cares Thine own,
Making God’s compassion known,
Hear us, holy Je­sus.

By Thy life, so lone and still,
By Thy waiting to fulfill
In its time Thy Fa­ther’s will,
Hear us, holy Je­sus.

May we mark the pattern fair
Of Thy life of work and prayer,
And for truth all perils dare,
Hear us, Holy Je­sus.

Bid us come, at last, to Thee,
And for­ev­er perfect be,
Where Thy glo­ry we shall see,
Hear us, holy Je­sus.
