"O Jesus, Lamb of God, Thou Art" by Bartholomaeus Helder Translated by August Crull, 1845-1923 Text From: THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941) 1. O Jesus, Lamb of God, Thou art The Life and Comfort of my heart. A sinner poor I come to Thee And bring my many sins with me. 2. O God, my sin indeed is great; I groan beneath the dreadful weight. Be merciful to me, I pray; Take guilt and punishment away. 3. Saint John the Baptist points to Thee And bids me cast my sin on Thee; For Thou hast left Thy throne on high To suffer for the world and die. 4. Help me to mend my ways, O Lord, And gladly to obey Thy Word. While here I live, abide with me; And when I die, take me to Thee.This text was converted to ascii format for Project Wittenberg by Debbie Harris and is in the public domain.
