Jesu, meek and lowly,
Saviour pure and holy,
On thy love relying
Hear me humbly crying.

Prince of life and power,
My salvation Tower,
On the Cross I view Thee
Calling sinners to thee.

There behold me gazing
At the sight amazing;
Bending low before thee,
Helpless, I adore Thee.

By Thy red wounds streaming,
With Thy life-blood gleaming,
Blood for sinners flowing,
Pardon free bestowing;

By that fount of blessing,
Thy dear love expressing,
All my aching sadness
Turn thou into gladness.

Lord in mercy guide me,
Be thou e’er beside me;
In thy ways direct me,
’Neath thy wings protect me.
