Tune: WIR DANKEN DIR, HERR JESU CHRIST (Herman)
Published in 2 hymnals
1 We bless Thee, Jesus Christ our Lord;
Forever be Thy name adored:
For Thou, the sinless One, hast died,
That sinners might be justified.
2 O very Man, and very God,
Who hast redeemed us with Thy blood;
From death eternal set us free,
And make us one with God in Thee.
3 From sin and shame defend us still,
And work in us Thy steadfast will,
The cross with patience to sustain,
And bravely bear its utmost pain.
4 In Thee we trust, in Thee alone;
For Thou forsakest not Thine own;
To all the meek Thy strength is giv'n,
Who by Thy cross ascend to heav'n.
