Hymn for Lent (Day 20): Heal me, hands of Jesus
This is from the Gospel in the Office lectionary for today.
Heal me, hands of Jesus, and search out all my pain;
Restore my hope, remove my fear, and bring me peace again.
Cleanse me, blood of Jesus, take all bitterness away;
Let me forgive as one forgiven, and bring me peace today.
Know me, mind of Jesus, and show me all my sin;
Dispel the memories of guilt, and bring me peace within.
Fill me, joy of Jesus, anxiety shall cease,
and heaven’s serenity be mine, for Jesus brings me peace.
