     11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. 13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

     17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

     20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

     24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.(KJV)

1. I lay my sins on Jesus, 
The spotless Lamb of God; 
He bears them all and frees us 
From the accursed load. 
I bring my guilt to Jesus 
To wash my crimson stains 
White in His blood most precious 
Till not a spot remains. 

2. I lay my wants on Jesus, 
All fulness dwells in Him; 
He healeth my diseases, 
He doth my soul redeem. 
I lay my griefs on Jesus, 
My burdens and my cares; 
He from them all releases, 
He all my sorrows shares. 

3. I rest my soul on Jesus, 
This weary soul of mine; 
His right hand me embraces, 
I on His breast recline. 
I love the name of Jesus, 
Immanuel, Christ the Lord; 
Like fragrance on the breezes 
His name abroad is poured. 

4. I long to be like Jesus, 
Meek, loving, lowly, mild; 
I long to be like Jesus, 
The Father’s holy Child. 
I long to be with Jesus 
Amid the heavenly throng 
To sing with saints His praises, 
To learn the angels’ song.
