Jesus, Lord, Redeemer

Representative Text

1 Jesus, Lord, Redeemer,
once for sinners slain,
crucified in weakness,
raised in pow'r to reign,
dwelling with the Father,
endless in your days,
unto you be glory,
honor, blessing, praise.

2 Faithful ones, communing
toward the close of day,
desolate and weary,
met you in the way.
So, when sun is setting,
come to us and show
all the truth; and in us
make our hearts to glow.

3 In the upper chamber,
where the ten in fear
gathered sad and troubled,
there you did appear.
So, O Lord, this evening,
bid our sorrows cease;
breathing on us, Savior,
say, "I give you peace."
