Jesus Intercedes

Jesus our Intercessor and the Prince of peace,
Sees the fruit of his labour his kingdom increase.
This kingdom against the gates of hell prevails,
No matter how well the enemy assails.

Jesus strengthens the church each time,
Because he intercedes for it in heaven sublime.
He bears up each child, woman and man,
For its God’s will that He can.

Jesus makes our prayers a fragrant offering,
By virtue of his cross, death, resurrection and suffering.
Through the grace of Christ each sinner repents,
And so escapes all hellish descents.

Jesus gives true hope to our Land,
For his is seated at God’s right hand.
With him the Holy Spirit too intercedes,
In utterances surpassing our needs.
