O for a heart to love my God A heart from sin set




O for a heart to praise my God,
A heart from sin set free,
A heart that always feels Thy blood
So freely shed for me.


A heart resigned, submissive, meek,
My dear Redeemerís throne,
Where only Christ is heard to speak,
Where Jesus reigns alone:


A humble, lowly, contrite heart,
Believing, true, and clean;
Which neither life nor death can part
From Him that dwells within:


A heart in every thought renewed,
And full of love divine;
Perfect, and right, and pure, and good,
A copy, Lord, of Thine.


Thy tender heart is still the same,
And melts at human woe:
Jesus, for thee distressed I am,
I want Thy love to know.


My heart, Thou knowest, can never rest
Till Thou create my peace;
Till of mine Eden repossessed,
From self, and sin, I cease.


Fruit of Thy gracious lips, on me
Bestow that peace unknown,
The hidden manna, and the tree
Of life, and the white stone.


Thy nature, gracious Lord, impart;
Come quickly from above,
Write Thy new name upon my heart,
Thy new, best name of love.

Oh, for a heart to praise my God,

Sprinkled with that atoning blood,
So freely shed for me.


Oh, for a heart to praise my God,
A heart from sin set free;
A heart thatís sprinkled with His blood,
So freely shed for me.


O for a heart to praise my God,
A heart from sin set free,
A heart that always feels Thy blood
So freely split for me.


O for a heart to praise my God,
A heart from sin set free,
A heart that always feels Thy blood
Thou, Lord, hast been to me.


O for a heart to love my God,
A heart from sin set free,
A heart that always feels the blood
So freely shed for me.


Oh, for a heart submissive, meek,
My great Redeemerís throne,
Where only Christ is heard to speak,
Where Jesus reigns alone.

Which neither life nor death can part
From Him that dwells within.

Believing, true, and clean;
Which neither life nor death can part
From Him that dwells within:

A copy, Lord, of Thine.


A heart in every thought renewed,
And full of love divine;

Conformed, O Lord, of Thine.


Thy spirit, gracious Lord, impart;
Come quickly from above,
O write Thy name upon my heart,
Thy name, O God, is love.
