Christ My Song - 913
Jesus, I come to thee - Heart breathings
(James George Deck/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
2. Jesus, I l o o k to thee,
the holy, spotless Lamb,
uplifted on the tree,
bearing my sin, and shame:
thou for my sake thyself hast given;
my sins, through thee, are all forgiven.
3. Jesus, I t r u s t in thee;
I know thy word is sure;
promise and oath agree
to make my soul secure:
through life and death, through storm and wave,
assured I am that thou wilt save.
4. Jesus, I b o a s t in thee,
before whom angels fall;
for thou art made to me,
my glory, yea, my all:
wisdom, and righteousness divine,
in thee I have, – for thou art mine.
5. Jesus, I c a l l on thee
in ev'ry hour of woe;
thine eyes still watch o'er me
while wand'ring here below:
my feeblest cry does reach thine ear,
as strong to help, as swift to hear.
6. Jesus, I h o p e in thee;
soon will the Bridegroom come:
thy face I long to see
in thy eternal home: –
sweet hope, O Lord, to spend with thee
the ages of eternity!
James George Deck, Hymns and Sacred Poems, 1906, 63-64.
