Hymn/Song Information

I ask the gift of righteousness The sin subduing




I ask the gift of righteousness,
The sin-subduing power,
Power to believe, and go in peace,
And never grieve thee more.


I ask the blood-bought pardon sealed,
The liberty from sin,
The grace infused, the love revealed,
The kingdom fixed within.


Thou hearest me for salvation pray,
Thou seest my heart's desire;
Made ready in thy powerful day,
Thy fullness I require.


My vehement soul cries out opprest,
Impatient to be freed;
Nor can I, Lord, nor will I rest,
Till I am saved indeed.


Art thou not able to convert?
Art thou not willing too?
To change this old rebellious heart,
To conquer and renew?


Thou canst, thou wilt, I dare believe,
So arm me with thy power,
That I to sin shall never cleave,
Shall never feel it more.
