1 Jesu, Redeemer, Savior, Lord,
The weary sinner's friend:
Come to my help pronounce the word,
Bid my corruptions end.

2 Thou canst o'ercome this heart of mine,
Thou canst victorious prove;
For everlasting strength is thine,
And everlasting love.

3 Thy powerful spirit can subdue
Unconquerable sin;
Cleanse my foul heart, and make it new,
And write thy law within.

4 Bound down with twice ten thousand ties,
Yet let me hear thy call;
My soul in confidence shall rise,
Shall rise and break through all.

5 Speak, and the deaf shall hear thy voice,
The blind his sight receive,
The dumb in songs of praise rejoice,
The heart of stone believe.

6 The Ethiop then shall change his skin,
The dead shall feel thy power;
The loathsome leper shall be clean,
And I shall sin abhor.
