Blessed Jesus, here we stand
1 Blessed Jesus, here we stand
Met to do as thou hast spoke
And this child at Thy command
Now we bring to thee in token
That to Christ it here is given
For of such shall be His heaven.
2 Therefore hasten we to Thee
Take the pledge we bring , O take
Let us here Thy glory see
And in tender pity make it
Now Thy child and leave never
Thine on earth, and thine for ever.
3 Make it, Head, thy member now
Shepherd, take Thy lamb and feed it
Prince of peace, its peace be thou
Way of life, to heaven O lead it
Vine, this branch may nothing sever
Grafted firm in Thee for ever.
4 Now upon Thy heart it lies
What our hearts so dearly treasure
Heavenward lead our burden sighs
Pour Thy blessing without measure.
Write the name we now have given
Write it in the book of heaven.
