James J. Cummins, 1859

Jesus, Lord of life and glory,
Bend from heaven thy gracious ear;
While our waiting souls adore thee,
Friend of helpless sinners, hear:
Refrain:
By thy mercy,
O deliver us, good Lord.

2. From the depths of nature's blindness,
From the hardening power of sin,
From all malice and unkindness,
From the pride that lurks within,
Refrain:

3. When temptation sorely presses,
In the day of Satan's power,
In our times of deep distresses,
In each dark and trying hour,
Refrain:

4. When the world around is smiling,
In the time of wealth and ease
Earthly joys our hearts beguiling,
In the day of health and peace,
Refrain:

5. In the weary hours of sickness,
In the times of grief and pain,
When we feel our mortal weakness,
When all human help is vain,
Refrain:

6. In the solemn hour of dying,
In the awful judgment day,
May our souls, on thee relying,
Find thee still our hope and stay:
Refrain:
