Give Me Jesus


Give me Jesus, Rose of Sharon.

Lily of the valley sweet;

Give me Jesus, Bread of heaven,

Freely I this Bread would eat.


Give me Jesus, gentle Shepherd,

Faithful Leader of the flock;

Give me Jesus, Rock of Ages,

Proof against sin's rudest shock.


Give me Jesus, Stem of Jesse,

Root of David, Morning Star;

Give me Jesus, Light of heaven,

Shining through the gates ajar.


Give me Jesus, King of Salem

Prince of Peace, of Righteousness;

Give me Jesus, he will gladly

Clothe me with salvation's dress.


Give me Jesus, Lamb most holy,

Gift of God before the fall;

Give me Jesus, slain for sinners,

Offered for the sins of all.


Give me Jesus, only Jesus,

He alone can satisfy;

Give me Jesus, blessed Jesus,

Give me Jesus, or I die.


Give me Jesus, interceding

Now for me at God's right hand;

Give me Jesus, he will guide me

Safely to the promised land.


Give me Jesus, Stone of Israel,

Rock of Ages cleft, for me;

Give me Jesus, in his keeping

I am safe eternally.
