My hope is still in Je­sus,
Tho’ prone I am to sin;
My heart has been His dwell­ing
Since first He en­tered in;
Tho’ oft­en, far too oft­en,
Unworthy of His name,
My hope is still in Je­sus,
His love is still the same.


My hope is still in Je­sus,
I love Him, yes, I do,
For O He died to save us,
He died for me, for you.

Tho’ weak­er than the weak­est,
Yet still His love I feel;
Behold, in deep con­tri­tion,
Low at the cross I kneel;
Imploring sweet for­give­ness,
My weak­ness pi­ty­ing see;
For love of Thee, O Je­sus,
My trust is till in Thee.


Thy name to me is dear­er,
Than any name I know,
A charm it is, a bless­ing,
Wherever I may go;
Thy suf­fer­ing and Thy sor­row,
I seem to see again;
My heart is filled with glad­ness,
Whene’er I hear Thy name.


My hope is still in Je­sus,
And shall be to the end;
None else is there to help me,
None oth­er can de­fend;
My hope is still in Je­sus,
’Twas plant­ed long ago,
My hope is still in Je­sus,
And O I love Him so.
