362. Lord Jesus Christ, My Savior Blest

1 Lord Jesus Christ,
My Savior blest,
My Hope and my Salvation!
Lord, hear my plea:
Deliver me
From misery!
Your Word brings consolation.

2 Lord, as you will,
So lead me still;
Your mercy fails me never.
My God, I pray:
Teach me your way
To my last day;
From evil keep me ever.

3 I have your Word,
Christ Jesus, Lord:
You never will forsake me!
This will I plead
In time of need.
Oh, help with speed
When troubles overtake me!

4 Now henceforth must
I put my trust
In you, O dearest Savior.
Your gracious choice,
Your Word and voice,
Make me rejoice
Though sinful my behavior.

5 Grant, Lord, I pray,
Your grace each day,
That I, your name revering,
Your glory see
And happy be
Before your throne appearing.
