Fifth Sunday of Lent
Jesus, Lover of my soul, hold me close in sweet embrace!
Comfort my spirit, sing & caress me to sleep, wait by my side for the dawn's arrival, Holy Lover of mine.
My Sun and Moon, My Daily Surrender, My Constant Companion!
Original hymn text of "Jesus, Lover of My Soul" by Charles Wesley (1740).
