O Jesus So Sweet, O Jesus So Mild

Full Text

1 O Jesus so sweet, O Jesus so mild!
For sinners You became a child.
You came from heaven to fulfill
Your Father's just and holy will.
O Jesus so sweet, O Jesus so mild!

2 O Jesus so sweet, O Jesus so mild!
With God we now are reconciled.
You have for all the ransom paid,
Your Father’s righteous anger stayed.
O Jesus so sweet, O Jesus so mild!

3 O Jesus so sweet, O Jesus so mild!
Joy fills the world which sin defiled.
Whate'er we have belongs to You;
Oh, keep us faithful, strong, and true.
O Jesus so sweet, O Jesus so mild!
