I Adore Thee


Jesus, preaching good tidings to the poor,

proclaiming release to the captives,

setting at liberty them that are bound,

I adore Thee.

Jesus, Friend of the poor,

Feeder of the hungry,

Healer of the sick,

I adore Thee.

Jesus, denouncing the oppressor,

instructing the simple,

going about doing good,

I adore Thee.

Jesus, Teacher of patience,

Pattern of gentleness,

Prophet of the kingdom of heaven,

I adore Thee.
