When Temptation Lays Me Low


When temptation lays me low,
Filled with deepest grief I go
To the One who loves me so-
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!

Refrain:
Let me love thee more and more
Than I ever have before-
Sing Thy praises o’er and o’er-
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!

For He pardons all my sins-
Makes me pure without, within;
Gives me grace the fight to win-
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus! [Refrain]

Tho’ I wander far away,
Lost amid the bitter fray,
He will ever be my stay-
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus! [Refrain]

Overcome, by sin oppressed,
Faint and weak and sore distressed,
He will ever be my Rest-
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus! [Refrain]

When I reach the other shore,
Meet the dear ones gone before,
I shall praise Him evermore-
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus! [Refrain]
