9232. Jesus Of Nazareth, Look Down

1 Jesus of Nazareth, look down
On those Thou call’st Thy flesh and bone,
Thy suffering members here;
Arise, in their defense arise,
And now, in all the heathens’ eyes,
Be their protector near.
[originally, "On Israel’s part appear."]

2 Thy weakest confessors defend,
And let them on Thyself depend,
For help in their distress:
Support, confirm the feeble mind,
And keep them all on Thee reclined,
And keep in perfect peace.

3 Let none forsake the fold and fly,
Let none thro’ fear their Lord deny,
But stand the fiery hour;
The greatness of Thy mercy prove,
The truth of Thy redeeming love,
And all sufficient power.

4 Let none unwarily give place
To Satan, with his angel face,
And yield their souls to sell;
To sell their conscience, and their God,
Or weary leave the narrow road,
And go for ease—to hell.

5 Still may they on the world look down,
Superior to its smile and frown,
Its threats and promises;
The tempter tread beneath their feet,
And Thee, where Satan keeps his seat,
In life, and death confess.

6 O, Savior, now their fears remove,
The sense of Thy redeeming love
Abundantly impart,
To all whose sacred love we feel;
The prayer of faith this moment seal
On every panting heart.
