O Jesus, youth of Nazareth

Full Text

1 O Jesus, youth of Nazareth,
Preparing for the bitter strife,
Wilt Thou impart to every heart
Thy perfect purity of life?

2 O Christ whose words make dear the fields
And hillsides green of Galilee,
Grant us to find with reverent mind
The truth Thou saidst should make us free.

3 O suffering Lord on Calvary,
Whom love led on to mortal pain,
We know Thy cross is not a loss
If we Thy love shall truly gain.

4 O Master of abundant life,
From natal morn to victory’s hour,
We look to Thee; heed Thou our plea,
Teach us to share Thy ageless power.

Amen.
