Hymn/Song Information

Stay Thou insulted Spirit stay Though I




Stay, Thou insulted Spirit, stay,
Though I have done Thee such despite,
Nor cast the sinner quite away,
Nor take Thine everlasting flight.


Though I have steeled my stubborn heart,
And still shook off my guilty fears,
And vexed, and urged Thee to depart,
For many long rebellious years;


Though I have most unfaithful been
Of all who e’er Thy grace received,
Ten thousand times Thy goodness seen,
Ten thousand times Thy goodness grieved;


Yet O! the chief of sinners spare,
In honor of my great High Priest,
Nor in Thy righteous anger swear
T’exclude me from Thy people’s rest.


This only woe I deprecate.
This only plague I pray remove;
Nor leave me in my lost estate,
Nor curse me with this want of love.


If yet Thou canst my sins forgive,
From now, O Lord, relieve my woes,
Into Thy rest of love receive,
And bless me with calm repose.


Now, Lord, my weary soul release,
Upraise me with Thy gracious hand.
And guide into Thy perfect peace,
And bring me to the promised land.


---Alternative verses---


Though I have most unfaithful been
And long in vain thy grace received;
Ten thousand times Thy goodness seen,
Ten thousand times Thy goodness grieved;


Yet, oh! the mourning sinner spare.
In honor of my great High Priest,
Nor in Thy righteous anger swear
T’exclude me from Thy people’s rest.


My weary soul, O God, release;
Uphold me with thy gracious hand;
Guide me into thy perfect peace,
And bring me to the promised land.


E'en now my weary soul release.
And raise me by thy gracious hand!
Guide me into thy perfect peace.
And bring me to the promis'd land.
