Words by the Reverend Arthur T. Russell (1806-1874), a priest of The Church of England


1.  O Jesus, we adore Thee,

Upon the cross, our King;

We bow our hearts before Thee;

Thy gracious name we sing:

That name hath bro’t salvation,

That name, in life our stay;

Our peace, our consolation

When life shall fade away.

2.  Yet doth the world disdain Thee,

Still passing by Thy cross;

Lord, may our hearts retain Thee;

All else we count but loss.

O glorious King, we bless Thee,

No longer pass Thee by;

O Jesus, we confess Thee

Our Lord, enthroned on high.

3.  Thy wounds, Thy grief beholding,

With Thee, O Lord, we grieve;

Thee in our hearts enfolding,

Our hearts Thy wounds receive;

Lord, grant to us remission;

Life through Thy death restore;

Of life for evermore.
