“Gentle Jesus, Pure and Fair,” New Era, Apr. 2015, 28
1. Gentle Jesus, pure and fair,
Hope of nations lying there,
God who loves all souls on earth
Sent the gift of greatest worth.
He who slept in lowly stall
Had come to save us all.
2. Gentle Jesus walked the land.
Dead men rose at His command.
As He taught the wonder of
Heaven’s pure and healing love.
He with pow’r o’er earth and seas
Taught men to live in peace.
3. Gentle Jesus cared so much
He laid down His life for us.
He alone had pow’r enough
To redeem us by His love.
He who willingly forgave
Went down into the grave.
4. Gentle Jesus rose again
As our great eternal friend.
Oh, what joy this message gives;
Jesus Christ, our Savior lives.
He whose mission was divine
Brought hope to all mankind.
5. Gentle Jesus, come again.
Cleanse the world of pain and sin
Come with majesty and love
From the sacred courts above.
Gentle Jesus, come again
And heal the hearts of men.
