1When the world is brightest,
And our hearts are lightest,
Blessèd Jesu, hear us!
Let Thy hand be near us!
2When life’s scene is shaded,
All its bright hopes faded,
Blessèd Jesu, hear us!
Light of heaven, be near us!
3When with blessings sated,
Or by praise elated,
Blessèd Jesu, hear us!
Let Thy cross be near us!
4When the night of sorrow
Makes us dread tomorrow,
Blessèd Jesu, hear us!
Let Thy help be near us!
5When our foes surround us,
When our sins have bound us,
Blessèd Jesu, hear us!
Let Thy help be near us!
6When our hearts are grieving,
O’er the grave bereaving,
Blessèd Jesu, hear us!
Light of heaven, be near us!
7When in sickness lying,
Dark with fear of dying,
Blessèd Jesu, hear us!
Let Thy help be near us!
8When life, slowly waning,
Shows but heaven remaining,
Blessèd Jesu, hear us!
Light of all, be near us! Amen.
Psalm119:151Thou art near, O LORD; and all thy commandments are truth.
