Jesus, Lord of Life and Glory

$0.00$5.00

This beautiful hymn by James John Cummins had fallen into disuse until fairly recently. It covers all of life— depth of sin, temptation, ease and joy, sickness, and dying— and always brings us back to the prayer, “By your mercy, oh, deliver us, good Lord.”

An SATB arrangement of this song is also available from GIA Music, G-8892.

This song is mentioned in Greg’s podcast, “Devotion, Temptation, and Confession.

1. Jesus, Lord of life and glory,
Bend from heaven your gracious ear;
As we wait for you, adoring,
Friend of helpless sinners, hear:
By your mercy, oh, deliver us, good Lord.
By your mercy, oh, deliver us, good Lord.

2. From the depths of nature’s blindness,
From the hardening power of sin,
From the malice of unkindness,
From the pride that lurks within:
By your mercy, oh, deliver us, good Lord.
By your mercy, oh, deliver us, good Lord.

3. When temptation sorely presses,
In the day of Satan’s power,
In our times of deep distresses,
In each dark and trying hour:
By your mercy, oh, deliver us, good Lord.
By your mercy, oh, deliver us, good Lord.

4. When the world around is smiling,
In the time of wealth and ease,
Earthly joys our hearts beguiling,
In the day of health and peace:
By your mercy, oh, deliver us, good Lord.
By your mercy, oh, deliver us, good Lord.

5. In the weary hours of sickness,
In the times of grief and pain,
When we feel our mortal weakness,
When all human help is vain:
By your mercy, oh, deliver us, good Lord.
By your mercy, oh, deliver us, good Lord.

6. In the solemn hour of dying,
In the awful judgment day,
May our souls, on you relying,
Find you still our hope and stay:
By your mercy, oh, deliver us, good Lord.
By your mercy, oh, deliver us, good Lord.
