Catholic Activity: Jesus Thou Art Coming
A hymn for Holy Communion taken from a Slovak Hymnal.
1. Jesus, Thou art coming, Holy as Thou art, Thou, the God who made me, To my sinful heart. Jesus, I believe it On Thy only word; Kneeling, I adore Thee As my King and Lord.
2. Who am I, my Jesus, That Thou comet to me? I have sinned against Thee, Often, grievously; I am very sorry I have caused Thee pain; I will never, never, Wound Thy Heart again.
3. Put Thy kind arms round me, Feeble as I am; Thou art my Good Shepherd, I, Thy little lamb; Since Thou comest, Jesus, Now to be my Guest, I can trust Thee always, Lord, for all the rest.
4. Dearest Lord, I love Thee, With my whole, whole heart, Not for what Thou givest, But for what Thou art. Come, oh, come, sweet Saviour! Come to me, and stay, For I want Thee, Jesus, More than I can say.
5. Ah! what gift or present, Jesus, can I bring? I have nothing worthy Of my God and King; But Thou art my Shepherd, I, Thy little lamb; Take myself, dear Jesus, All I have and am.
6. Take my body, Jesus, Eyes, and ears, and tongue; Never let them, Jesus, Help to do Thee wrong. Take my heart, and fill it Full of love for Thee; All I have I give Thee, Give Thyself to me.
