Christ My Song - 1257
Praise the Saviour, ye who know him
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Praise the Saviour, ye who know him.
"O Lord, I will praise thee." (Isaiah 12,1)
2. Jesus is the name that charms us,
that for conflict fits and arms us;
nothing moves, and nothing harms us,
when we trust in him.
3. Trust in him, ye saints, for ever,
he is faithful, changing never;
neither force nor guile can sever
those he loves from him.
4. Keep us, Lord, O keep us cleaving
to thyself, and still believing,
till the time of our receiving
promised joy in heav'n.
5. Then we shall be where we would be,
then we shall be what we should be;
that which is not now, nor could be,
will be then our own.
Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 228.
