Hymn/Song Information

O that I could repent O that I could




O that I could repent!
O that I could believe!
|: Thou by Thy voice the marble rent, :|
The rock in sunder cleave!


Thou, by Thy two-edged sword,
My soul and spirit part,
|: Strike with the hammer of Thy Word, :|
And break my stubborn heart!


Savior, and Prince of Peace,
The double grace bestow;
|: Unloose the bands of wickedness, :|
And let the captive go:


Grant me my sins to feel,
And then the load remove:
|: Wound, and pour in,
my wounds to heal, :|
The balm of pardoning love.


For Thy own mercy’s sake
The cursèd thing remove;
|: And into Thy protection take :|
The prisoner of Thy love:


In every trying hour
Stand by my feeble soul;
|: And screen me from
my nature’s power, :|
Till Thou hast made me whole.


This is Thy will, I know,
That I should holy be,
|: Should let my sin this moment go, :|
This moment turn to Thee:


O might I now embrace
Thy all-sufficient power;
|: And never more to sin give place, :|
And never grieve Thee more!
