"In Thee Alone, O Christ, My Lord" by Johannes Schneesing, ?-1567 Translated by Arthur T. Russell, 1806-1874 Text From: THE HANDBOOK TO THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1942)p.319 1. In Thee alone, O Christ, my Lord, My hope on earth remaineth; I know Thou wilt Thine aid afford, Naught else my soul sustaineth. No strenghth of man, no earthly stay Can help me in the evil day; Thou, only Thou, canst aid supply. To Thee I cry; On Thee I bid my heart rely. 2. My sins, O Lord, against me rise, I mourn them with contrition; Grant, through my death and sacrifice, To me a full remission. Lord, show before the Father's throne That Thou didst for my sins atone; So shall I from my load be freed. Thy Word I plead; Keep me, O Lord, each hour of need. 3. O Lord, in mercy stay my heart On faith's most sure foundation And to my inmost soul impart Thy perfect consolation. Fill all my life with love to Thee, Toward all men grant me charity; And at the last, when comes my end, Thy succor send. From satan's wiles my soul defend.This text was converted to ascii format for Project Wittenberg by Debbie Harris and is in the public domain. You may freely distribute, copy or print this text.
