Tender Christ, forever near, Help me feel your presence here. Focus me on thy pure light, Inward singleness of sight.
Healing Christ, deliver me. Spirit whole and sound and free Deep within my heart abide; Loose my soul of pain and pride.
Joyous Christ, sweet inner glow, Oh that you can move me so, Trade thou darkest night for peace—Daunting fears for glad release.
Loving Christ, eternal friend, On thee only I depend. Make my life serene and still With the sureness of thy will.
Saving Christ, be thou my mind, All compassionate and kind. Open self that I might see Without you there is no me.
