        1. Praise to Thee and adoration,

        Blessed Jesus, Son of God,

        Who, to serve Thine own creation,

        Didst partake of flesh and blood.

        Teach me that I never may

        From Thy fold or pastures stray,

        But with zeal and joy exceeding

        Follow where Thy steps are leading.

        2. Let me never, Lord, forsake Thee,

        E'en though bitter pain and strife

        On my way shall overtake me;

        But may I through all my life

        Walk in fervent love to Thee,

        In all woes for comfort flee

        To Thy birth, Thy death, and Passion,

        Till I see Thy full salvation.
