Hymn 375 - "Lord Jesus, holy Lamb of God,"


Lord Jesus, holy Lamb of God,

Who shed'st for us Thine own life-blood,

Come, teach us all Thy love—then pain

In life were sweet, and death were gain.


Take Thou our hearts, and let them be

For ever held, O Lord, for Thee.

Thy willing servants, let us wear

The seal of love for ever there.


How blest are they who still abide

Close sheltered by Thy watchful side;

Who life and strength from Thee receive,

And with Thee move, and in Thee live.


Ah, Lord, enlarge our scanty thought,

To know the wonders Thou hast wrought

Unloose our stamm'ring tongues to tell

Thy love, immense, unsearchable!
