Gentle Jesus


christian-myspace-backgrounds

Gentle Jesus listen closely

To the words that I would say,

‘Tis with love that knows no limits,

That I come to Thee today.

For without You life is empty,

With no comfort anyplace,

I have naught save You to help me,

Do not turn away Thy face.

Gentle Jesus teach me patience,

Take away this foolish pride,

Grant I only permitted,

To continue at Thy side.

Though my heart is sometimes weary,

And my eyes are filled with tears,

I have only but to tell Thee

And my sorrow disappears.

Gentle Jesus, Lord and Master,

Deep within this human shell,

Lives a soul which Thou hast ransomed,

It would love Thee long and well.

You have felt as I am feeling,

Who could better understand,

That the One who meekly listened,

To their “crucify the Man!”
