Thou all sinless, holy, pure,
Hear us, save us, JESU !
Sorrow for our sins in part, O how blest to draw so near,
Cleanse and soften every heart, Unto Thee, our Saviour dear,
In Thy merits grant a part ; Who in mystery art here;
Hear us, save us, JESU! We adore Thee, JESU !
By Thy grace within us shed, Thou who tenderly hast smiled,
May our youthful feet be led As a little helpless Child,
Paths of holiness to tread ; On Thy Maiden-Mother mild ;.
Hear us, save us, JESU ! We adore Thee, JESU!
Part III. Whom the star-led Magi three,
Shepherd, Who Thy life didst give Came from far-off lands to see,
That Thy sheep in Thee might live, Offering gifts most reverently ;
Now our grateful praise receive, We adore Thee, JESU !
Hear, accept us, JESU ! Kneeling on the stable floor,
As 'neath veils of bread and wine In that lowly Infant poor
We adore Thee, King Divine, They the mighty God adore ;
May Thy Face upon us shine; We adore Thee, JESU !
Hear, accept us, JESU! So to us Thyself reveal,
May our lips and lives express That we may Thy Presence seel
Faith and love, and thankfulness, As in worship low we kneel ;
Fill us with all holiness ;
Hear, accept us, JESU !
Make us love Thee more and more, Faithful Shepherd, hear our cry,
Till we reach the Eternal shore, To Thine arms Thy lambs would fly,
Where unveiled for evermore, On Thy boundless love rely ;
We adore Thee, JESU ! Hear us, save us, JESU !
Then in worship falling prone, Lamb of GOD, Who tak’st away
There before Thy Glory Throne All our sin, on Thee we lay
We shall know as we are known, Every sin and grief to-day ;
And adore Thee, JESU ! Hear us, save us, JESU !

We adore Thee, Son of GOD. We adore Thee, we adore Thee, Bending low in prayer before Thee; In this Sacrament of Blessing All Thy love for us confessing. We adore Thee, Son of GOD.
