Dearest Jesu We Are Here Lyrics
1. Dearest Jesu, we are here,
At thy call, thy presence owning;
Pleading now in holy fear
That great sacrifice atoning:
Word incarnate, much in wonder
On this mystery deep we ponder.
2. Jesu, strong to save — the same
Yesterday, today, for ever —
Make us fear and love thy name,
Serving thee with best endeavour:
In this life, O ne’er forsake us,
But to bliss hereafter take us.
- Lyrics by George Ratcliffe Woodward (1848-1934) based on the German original by Tobias Clausnitzer (1619-1684).
- Meter: 78 78 88.
