1.  Praise to Thee and adoration,

Blessed Jesus, Son of God,

Who, to serve Thine own creation,

Didst partake of flesh and blood.

Teach me that I never may

From Thy fold or pastures stray,

But with zeal and joy exceeding

Follow where Thy steps are leading.

2.  Let me never, Lord, forsake Thee,

E’en tho’ bitter pain and strife

On my way shall overtake me;

But may I thro’ all my life

Walk in fervent love to Thee,

In all woes for comfort flee

To Thy birth, Thy death, and Passion

Till I see Thy full salvation.
