1. Jesus Christ, my pride and glory,
He, the true and living Light,
Strengthens me with glorious might.
Christ, revealed in sacred story,
Whom I now as Lord confess,
Teaches me true holiness.
2. Let me live to praise Thee ever,
Jesus, thou my heart's Delight,
Thou who leadest me aright.
Let me cling to Thee forever,
All the fleshly lusts deny
And the devil's hosts defy.
3. Grant me, Lord, Thy Holy Spirit
That in all I follow Him
Lest the light of faith grow dim.
Let me ever trust Thy merit,
Let Thy blessing me attend,
From all evil me defend.
4. From all pain and imperfection,
Gracious Lord, deliver me,
Heaven's glory let me see.
Keep me under Thy direction
That the grace thou gavest me
I may praise eternally.
