Jesus, meek and gentle

1
Jesus, meek and gentle,
Son of God most High,
Pitying, loving Savior,
Hear Thy children’s cry.
2
Pardon our offences,
Loose our captive chains,
Break down every idol
Which our soul detains.
3
Give us holy freedom,
Fill our heart with grace;
Lead us on our journey,
Till we win the race.
4
Jesus, meek and gentle,
Son of God most high,
Pitying, loving Savior,
Hear Thy children’s cry.

Back in Secondary school in those days, we always sing this lovely hymn in the morning assembly before we March in.

I have forgotten about the song completely until one little girl from my street was. returning from school few days ago and she sang the song while she walk along the Road and I remembered it again.
