We Bless Thee Jesus Christ Our Lord


We bless Thee, Jesus Christ our Lord;
Forever be Thy name adored:
For Thou, the sinless One, hast died,
That sinners might be justified.

O very Man, and very God,
Who hast redeemed us with Thy blood;
From death eternal set us free,
And make us one with God in Thee.

From sin and shame defend us still,
And work in us Thy steadfast will,
The cross with patience to sustain,
And bravely bear its utmost pain.

In Thee we trust, in Thee alone;
For Thou forsakest not Thine own;
To all the meek Thy strength is giv’n,
Who by Thy cross ascend to heav’n.
