476: PRAISE the Saviour, ye who know Himby Thomas Kelly (1769-1854)
1 PRAISE the Saviour, ye who know Him,
Who can tell how much we owe Him?
Gladly let us render to Him
All we have and are.
2 Jesus is the name that charms us;
He for conflict fits and arms us;
Nothing moves and nothing harms us
While we trust in Him.
3 Trust in Him, ye saints, for ever;
He is faithful, changing never;
Neither force nor guile can sever
Those He loves from Him.
4 Keep us, Lord, O keep us cleaving
To Thyself and still believing,
Till the hour of our receiving
Promised joys with Thee!
5 Then we shall be where we would be;
Then we shall be what we should be;
Things that are not now nor could be
Soon shall be our own.
