How blest the hour, Lord Jesus


But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ

O How blest the hour, Lord Jesus,

When we can to Thee draw near.

Promises so sweet and precious

From Thy gracious lips to hear!

 

 

 

 

 

Be with us this day to bless us.

That we may not hear in vain;

With the saving truths impress us.

Which the words of life contain.

 

 

 

 

See us, eager for salvation,

Sit, great Master, at Thy feet,

And with breathless expectation,

Hang upon Thine accents sweet.

 

 

 

 

 

Open Thou our minds, and lead

us

Safely on our heavenward way;

With the lamp of truth precede

us,

That we may not go astray.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Make us gentle, meek, and humble.

And yet bold in doing right:

Scatter darkness, lest we stumble;

Men walk safely in the light.

 

 

 

 

 

Lord, endue Thy word from heaven,

With such light, and love, and

power

That in us its silent heaven

May work on from hour to hour.

 

 

 

 

 

Give us grace to bear our witness,

To the truths we have embrace;

And let others both their sweetness

And their quickening virtue taste.
