O Jesus, the giver

Sacred Hymns (Manchester Hymnal) (1840, 1912), no. 17

1. O Jesus, the giver Of all we enjoy, Our lives to Thy honor We wish to employ; With praises unceasing We’ll sing of Thy name; Thy goodness increasing, Thy love we’ll proclaim.

2. With joy we remember The dawn of that day, When cold as December In darkness we lay; The sweet invitation We heard with surprise, And witnessed salvation Flow down from the skies.

3. The wonderful name Of Jesus we’ll sing, And publish the fame Of our Captain and King. With sweet exultation His goodness we prove; His name is salvation His nature is love.

4. We now are enlisted In Jesus’ blest cause. Divinely assisted To conquer our foes: His grace will support us Till conflicts are o’er, He then will escort us To Zion’s bright shore.
