Blessèd Jesus, hear my prayer
Upon Thee I cast my care;
Lift the bondage from me now,
While to Thee I humbly bow.
Savior, now my sins forgive,
Bid me come to Thee and live;
Let Thy blood cleanse every stain,
Take my heart and make it clean.
Teach me how to trust Thee, Lord,
Teach me how to keep Thy Word;
Teach me how to watch and pray,
How to serve Thee every day.
Blessèd Jesus, Thou art mine,
Pure and holy, just, divine;
Only Thee will I adore,
Praise Thee now and evermore.
