Holy Communion: The Communion 322. Jesus, gentlest Savior


Sabine Baring-Gould, 1868

Frederick William Faber, 1854;


Jesus, gentlest Savior,

God of might and power,

Thou thyself art dwelling

With us at this hour.

Nature cannot hold thee,

Heaven is all too strait

For thine endless glory

And thy royal state.

Out beyond the shining

Of the farthest star,

Thou art ever stretching

Infinitely far.

Yet the hearts of children

Hold what worlds cannot,

And the God of wonders

Loves the lowly spot.

Jesus, gentlest Savior,

Thou art with us now;

Fill us with thy goodness

Till our hearts o'erflow.

Multiply our graces;

Give us love and fear,

And, dear Lord, the chiefest,

Grace to persevere!

O how can we thank thee

For a gift like this,

Gift that truly maketh

Heaven's eternal bliss?
