569. Jesus, Lord of Life and Glory

1 Jesus, Lord of life and glory,
bend from heav'n thy gracious ear;
while our waiting souls adore thee,
Friend of helpless sinners, hear:

by thy mercy, O deliver us, good Lord.

2 From the depth of nature's blindness,
from the hard'ning pow'r of sin,
from all malice and unkindness,
from the pride that lurks within, [Refrain]

3 When temptation sorely presses,
In the day of Satan's pow'r,
In our times of deep distresses,
In each dark and trying hour, [Refrain]

4 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, [Refrain]

5 In our weary hours of sickness,
in our times of grief and pain,
when we feel our mortal weakness,
when the creature's help is vain, [Refrain]

6 In the solemn hour of dying,
in the awful Judgment Day,
may our souls, on thee relying,
find thee still our rock and stay: [Refrain]
