Methodist Hymnal (1876)
1 JESUS I humbly seek,
And of himself enquire,
Did not the prophet speak
Of thee, the world's Desire?
Thou poor, despised, afflicted Man,
His meaning to my heart explain.

2 Art thou the Lamb of God
Who didst from heaven come,
Led by the multitude,
Before thy shearers dumb,
The patient, speechless Man of woe,
By sinners crucified below?

3 Swept from the face of earth
Didst thou our sorrows bear,
Whose everlasting birth
God only can declare,
Whose countless seed shall soon arise,
And shine as stars beyond the skies?

4 Adopt me by thy grace
Into thy family,
My heart shall then confess
The prophet spake of thee,
Then, to mine inmost soul made known,
I feel he spake of thee alone.
