Dear Father, bless us ere we go;

Thy word into our minds instill;

And make our lukewarm hearts to glow

With lowly love and fervent will.

Thro’ life’s long day and death’s dark night,

O gracious Father, be our Light.

+++++

Grant us, O Lord, from evil ways

True absolution and release;

And bless us, more than in past days,

With purity and inward peace.

Thro’ life’s long day and death’s dark night,

O gracious Father, be our Light.

+++++

Do more than pardon; give us joy,

Sweet fear, and sober liberty,

And simple hearts without alloy,

That only long to be like Thee.

Thro’ life’s long day and death’s dark night,

O gracious Father, be our Light.

1.  Jesus, meek and lowly,

Saviour, pure and holy,

On Thy love relying,

Hear me humbly crying.

2.  Prince of life and power,

My salvation’s tower,

On the Cross I view Thee

Calling sinners to Thee.

3.  There behold me gazing

At the sight amazing:

Bending low before Thee,

Helpless, I adore Thee.

4.  By Thy red wounds streaming,

With Thy life-blood gleaming,

Blood for sinners flowing,

Pardon free bestowing;

5.  By that fount of blessing,

Thy dear love expressing,

All my aching sadness

Turn Thou into gladness.

6.  Lord, in mercy guide me;

Be Thou e’er beside me;

In Thy ways direct me,

‘Neath Thy wings protect me.

Hymn Source = Christian Youth Hymnal (1948), The United Lutheran Church in America

The original version had “Jesu,” not “Jesus.”

This is the most popular of the hymns Collins wrote, for it has had more staying power in hymnody than the others.

1.  Jesus, my Lord, my God, my All,

Hear me, blest Saviour, when I call!

Hear me, and from Thy dwelling-place

Pour down the riches of Thy grace.

Refrain:

Jesus, my Lord I Thee adore,

O make me love Thee more and more.

2.  Jesus, too late I Thee have sought;

How can I love Thee as I ought?

And how extol Thy matchless fame,

The glorious beauty of Thy Name?

Refrain

3.  Jesus, what didst Thou find in me,

That Thou hast dealt so lovingly?

How great the joy Thou hast brought,

So far exceeding hope or thought!

Refrain

4.  Jesus, of Thee shall be in my song,

To Thee my heart and soul belong;

All that I have or am is Thine,

And Thou, blest Saviour, Thou art mine.

Refrain
