Jesu, friend of sinners,
Son of God most holy,
Son of man most lowly,
Jesu, keep us near Thee.

Jesu, friend of sinners,
May our dull hearts love Thee,
May our blind eyes see Thee,
Jesu, keep us near Thee,

Blessed Jesu.
Jesu, friend of sinners,
Keep our lives unspotted,
Keep our thoughts from evil,
Jesu, keep us near Thee.

Praise we God the Father,
Praise the Son our Saviour,
With the Holy Spirit,
Triune God forever.
