Bear Jesus Christ the Lord in mind - Looking unto Jesus
(Cyriacus Günther/Frances Elizabeth Cox/
Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Looking unto Jesus.

Grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord
and Saviour Jesus Christ. (2 Peter 3,18)

1. Bear Jesus Christ the Lord in mind,
  who left his heavenly throne,
and, out of love to humankind,
  put human nature on –
    our Brother, born of flesh and blood,
    to make his sure salvation good;
  then thank him for his love.

2. Bear Jesus Christ the Lord in mind,
  who sore by grief was tried;
a ransom for our souls to find,
  upon the Cross he died:
    he vanquished sin and every foe,
    and saved us from eternal woe;
  then thank him for his love.

3. Bear Jesus Christ the Lord in mind,
  who, freed from grief and pain,
a Conqueror death hath failed to bind,
  the third day rose again;
    the righteous acts of Christ the Lord
    have life and peace to man restored;
  then thank him for his love.

4. Bear Jesus Christ the Lord in mind,
  who, all his sorrows past,
in sight of those he left behind,
  returned to heaven at last,
    there to prepare for us a place,
    where we shall always see his face;
  then thank him for his love.

5. Bear Jesus Christ the Lord in mind,
  who, from his throne above,
once more will come, the Judge assigned
  both quick and dead to prove;
    take heed that thou mayst stand the test,
    and enter then his holy rest,
  to thank him for his love.

6. Lord, let me ever bear in mind,
  and let my faith embrace
thy love to me and all mankind,
  and may thy cheering grace
    in hours of sorrow comfort give,
    and cause me after death to live,
  and thank thee for thy love.
