Jesus, faithful Friend of sinners,
God incarnate, pure and sinless;
I am full of all that hinders—
Empty, lonely, lost and friendless.
Jesus, tender Shepherd faithful,
God in fullness here below;
I am anxious, dull, ungrateful,
Prone to wander, full of woe.
Jesus, Servant, precious treasure,
Gave your life my life to win.
I am vain, pursuing pleasure,
Full of hunger, self and sin.
Jesus, Savior, blessed Redeemer—
Filled with mercy overflowing,
I’m forgiven without measure—
Friend of sinners, glorious King!
