O Jesu – William Hunnis

O JESU sweet, grant that Thy grace
Always so work in me,
I may desire the thing to do
Most pleasing unto Thee.

O Jesu meek, Thy will be mine,
My will be Thine also;
And that my will may follow Thine
In pleasure, pain, and woe.

O Jesu, what is good for me
Is aye best known to Thee;
Therefore according to Thy will
Have mercy now on me.

by William Huniss (also spelled Hunnis)

English protestant poet, dramatist and composer – died 1597
