Perfect in holiness,
         Perfect in grace,

Perfect in holiness,
         Perfect in grace,
Saviour who pities me,
        Show me thy face.
Men may think ill of me,
Friends prove untrue to me;
Closer I draw to thee,
        Grant thy embrace.

Little I understand
       How it can be,
Perfect in holiness,
       Lovest thou me?
Oft to my shame I’ve erred,
Yet, I believe thy word,
Thou, good and tender Herd,
       Lovest thy sheep.

Shepherd, I need thee now,
       Stay by my side.
Darkness surrounds my way,
       Light me, my Guide.
Sorrows are everywhere.
Guard me with tender care,
Help me the way to bear,
       Help me abide.
