Christ My Song - 1026
Jesus! thou in heaven art pleading - To Comfort Me
(Charlotte Elliott/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
To Comfort Me.
1. Jesus! thou in heaven art pleading,
even my unworthy cause!
Thou for me art interceding;
thy compassion ne'er withdraws.
Canst thou, oh! my soul, repine,
when so blessed a lot is thine?
2. When my path is dark and dreary,
and my strength indeed is small;
when my soul is faint and weary,
Saviour! let me then recall
thee, my Advocate above,
and thy never-changing love!
