1991 Denson Revision
to the Cooper book version of this tune
Blest Jesus, while in mortal flesh
I hold my frail abode,
Still would my spirit rest on Thee,
My Saviour and my God.
On Thy dear cross I fix my eyes,
My trust on Thee complete,
Till love dissolves my inmost soul
At my Redeemer's feet.
Be dead, my heart, to worldly charms,
Be dead to ev'ry sin;
And tell the boldest foe without
That Jesus reigns within.
