127. Jesus, Lord of life and glory

St. Raphael:

Edward J. Hopkins, 1862


Edward J. Hopkins (1818-1901)


James J. Cummins, 1839

Jesus, Lord of life and glory,

Bend from heaven thy gracious ear;

While our waiting souls adore thee,

Friend of helpless sinners, hear:

From the depths of nature's blindness,

From the hardening power of sin,

From all malice and unkindness,

From the pride that lurks within,

When temptation sorely presses,

In the day of Satan's power,

In our times of deep distresses,

In each dark and trying hour,

When the world around is smiling,

In the time of wealth and ease

Earthly joys our hearts beguiling,

In the day of health and peace,

In the weary hours of sickness,

In the times of grief and pain,

When we feel our mortal weakness,

When all human help is vain,

In the solemn hour of dying,

In the awful judgment day,

May our souls, on thee relying,

Find thee still our hope and stay:

By thy mercy,

O deliver us, good Lord.
