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.
