Thou who camest here in weakness

Thou who camest here in weakness

Representative Text

1 Thou, who camest from above,
Bringing light, and shedding love,
Teaching Thine all-perfect way,
Giving gifts to men to-day:

2 Thou who changest our lost state,
Making us regenerate,
Help us evermore to be
Faithful subjects unto Thee.

3 Where Thou art not, none can do
What is holy, just and true;
Those whose hearts Thy wisdom leads
Think good thoughts and do good deeds.

4 We have often grieved Thee sore;
Never let us grieve Thee more.
Thou the feeble canst protect,
Thou the wandering canst direct.

5 We are dark--be Thou our Light;
We are blind--be Thou our Sight.
Be our Comfort in distress,
Guide us through the wilderness.

6 To the blessed Three in One,
To the Father, and the Son,
And the Holy Ghost, arise
Praise from all below the skies.
