Loving Jesus Gentle Lamb

Loving Jesus, gentle Lamb,
In thy gracious hands I am;
Make me, Saviour, what thou art;
Live thyself within my heart.

Fain I would to thee be brought;
Gracious Lord, forbid it not;
In the kingdom of thy grace
Give a little child a place.

Fain I would be as thou art;
Give me thy obedient heart;
Thou art pitiful and kind;
Let me have thy loving mind.

Let me above all fulfill
God my heavenly Father’s will;
Never his good Spirit grieve,
Only to his glory live.

I shall then show forth thy praise,
Serve thee all my happy days;
Then the world shall always see
Christ, the holy child, in me.
