A Thanksgiving to Jesus [Anglican Patrimony]


To JESUS the life of our flesh,
Who quickeneth whom He willeth :

To JESUS the life of our soul,

Who came that we might live more abundantly:

To JESUS the life of His Church,

Who loved her and gave Himself for her :

Let all mankind in earth and in paradise,

Reconciled by His death, and saved by His life,
Give glory and honour, worship and praise,
Now and for ever and ever.
