1Jesu, Master, King of Glory,
Still to Thee we turn for life;
Conquerer when the battle’s sorest,
O sustain us in the strife.
When the world is hard upon us,
And we flinch before its scorn,
Let us learn an earnest purpose
From Thy Forehead pierced with thorn.
2When the Flesh is strong, and round us
All its poisonous vapors roll,
By Thy lacerated Body,
Dear Redeemer, save the soul.
3When the Fiend with subtlest temptings
Lures us to our endless loss,
Mighty Master, strike the strong one
With the sharpness of Thy Cross.
4When the last dark storm is gathering,
And our hearts are swept with fear,
By the love of Thy dear Passion,
Master, let us feel Thee near.
5So when all at last is ended,
And the rest is reached above;
May we swell Thy heart’s rejoicings
With the rapture of our love.
Psalm24:8Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
