Lord Jesus We Give Thanks to Thee - #173 - Crull Translation

"Lord Jesus, We Give Thanks to Thee"
by Christoph Fischer
Translated by August Crull, 1845-1923

1. Lord Jesus, we give thanks to Thee
That Thou hast died to set us free;
Made righteous through Thy precious blood,
We now are reconciled to God.

2. By virtue of Thy wounds we pray,
True God and Man, be Thou our Stay,
Our Comfort when we yield our breath,
Our Rescue from eternal death.

3. Defend us, Lord, from sin and shame;
Help us by Thine almighty name
To bear our crosses patiently,
Consoled by Thy great agony,

4. And thus the full assurance gain
That Thou to us wilt true remain
And not forsake us in our strife
Until we enter into life.
