Blessed Jesus, at Thy Word
Tobias Clausnitzer, 1663, tr. Catherine Winkworth, 1858; German text
|Blessed Jesus, at Thy Word|
We are gathered all to hear Thee;
Let our hearts and souls be stirred
Now to seek and love and fear Thee,
By Thy teachings sweet and holy,
Drawn from earth to love Thee solely.
2. All our knowledge, sense and sight
|3. Glorious Lord, Thyself impart!|
Light of light, from God proceeding,
Open Thou our ears and heart;
Help us by Thy Spirit's pleading;
Hear the cry Thy people raises;
Hear and bless our prayers and praises.
4. Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
