215. Jesus, my strength, my hope



John Stainer (1840-1901)

Charles Wesley, 1742

Jesus, my strength, my hope,

On Thee I cast my care;

With humble confidence look up,

And know Thou hear'st my prayer.

Give me on Thee to wait,

Till I can all things do;

On Thee, almighty to create,

Almighty to renew.

Give me a true regard,

A single, steady aim,

Unmoved by threatening or reward,

To Thee and Thy great Name;

A jealous, just concern

For Thine immortal praise;

A pure desire that all may learn

And glorify Thy grace.

I rest upon Thy word;

The promise is for me;

My succour and salvation, Lord,

Shall surely come from Thee:

But let me still abide,

Nor from my hope remove,

Till Thou my patient spirit guide

Into Thy perfect love.
