Lyrics

My new life I owe to Thee,
Jesus, Lamb of Calvary;
Sin was canceled on the tree,
Jesus, blessèd Jesus.

Humbly at Thy cross I’d stay,
Jesus, keep me there, I pray;
Teach me more of Thee each day,
Jesus, blessèd Jesus.

Grant me wisdom, grace and power—
Lord, I need Thee every hour.
Let my will be lost in Thine,
Jesus, blessèd Jesus.

Savior, Thou hast heard my plea—
Thou art near, so near to me;
Now I feel Thy strengthening power,
Jesus, blessèd Jesus.
