Jesus Gentlest Savior God Of Might


Jesus, gentlest Saviour,
God of might and power,
Thou thyself art dwelling
With us at this hour.

Nature cannot hold thee,
Heav’n is all too strait
For thine endless glory
And thy royal state.

Out beyond the shining
Of the farthest star,
Thou art ever stretching
Infinitely far.

Yet the hearts of children
Hold what worlds cannot,
And the God of wonders
Loves the lowly spot.

Jesus, gentlest Saviour,
Thou art with us now;
Fill us with thy goodness
Till our hearts o’erflow.

Multiply our graces,
Give us love and fear,
And, dear Lord, the chiefest,
Grace to persevere.

Amen.
