Jesus, Jesus, Sweet and Tender

                                  Jesus, Jesus, sweet and tender,

                                           be thou near my thoughts and guide

                                 With the holy hand of heaven

                                           to the place where I can hide,

                                 Emboldened by the saints’ glory

                                           light divine, shine thou on me,

                                 Whispering of loving splendor

                                           let me hide myself in Thee,

                                  Let me touch the hem of heaven,

                                           let me gain new strength divine,

                                  Holding on the hand of Jesus

                                           enveloped in his sacred arms.
