  • Jesus Gentlest Savior

    By: Father William Fredrick Faber

    Jesus, gentlest Savior,
    God of might and power,
    Thou thyself art dwelling
    In 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 furthest 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,
    Dwelling in us now,
    Fill us full of goodness
    Till our hearts o'erflow.

    Multiply our graces,
    Chiefly love and fear,
    And, dear Lord, the chiefest,
    Grace to persevere.

    "Jesus, Meek and Humble of Heart, make my heart like unto Thine!"
