O Patient Spotless One

by Christian Andreas Bernstein (1672-1699)


Tune: Spotless One S.M.

Tune: Solyma S.M.

Tune: Spotless One S.M.


1 O PATIENT, spotless One!
Our hearts in meekness train,
To bear Thy yoke, and learn of Thee,
That we may rest obtain.

2 Jesus, Thou art enough
The mind and heart to fill;
Thy patient life --- to calm the soul;
Thy love --- its fear dispel.

3 O fix our earnest gaze
So wholly, Lord, on Thee,
That, with Thy beauty occupied,
We elsewhere none may see.

You can hear the tune SOLYMA sung with better timing (3/4 rather than 4/4) under hymn 91 (recorded at Castlewellan in 2014). The tune SPOTLESS ONE is actually an old psalm tune called SELMA, supposedly adapted by R. A. Smith from a traditional Isle of Arran melody c. 1825.
