1  Jesus, meek and gentle,
Son of God most high,
Pitying, loving Saviour,
Hear Thy children's cry.

2  Pardon our offences,
Loose our captive chains,
Break down every idol
Which our soul detains.

3  Give us holy freedom,
Fill our hearts with love,
Draw us, holy Jesus,
To the realms above.


4  Lead us on our journey,
Be Thyself the Way
Through terrestrial darkness
To celestial day.

5  Jesus, meek and gentle,
Son of God most high,
Pitying, loving Saviour,
Hear Thy children's cry.
