Hymn/Song Information

Withdraw not thou thy help nor cast me




Withdraw not thou thy help,
nor cast me from thy sight;
Nor let thy holy Spirit take
its everlasting flight.


The joy thy favor gives
let me again obtain;
And thy free Spirit's firm support
my fainting soul sustain.


So I thy righteous ways
to sinners will impart,
Whilst my advice shall wicked men
to thy just laws convert.


My guilt of blood remove,
my Saviour and my God:
And my glad tongue shall loudly tell
thy righteous acts abroad.


Do thou unlock my lips,
with sorrow closed and shame;
So shall my mouth thy wondrous praise
to all the world proclaim.


Could sacrifice atone,
whole flocks and herds should die
But on such off'rings thou disdain'st
to cast a gracious eye.


A broken spirit is
by God most highly prized;
By him a broken contrite heart
shall never be despised.


Let Zion favor find,
of thy good-will assured;
And thy own city flourish long,
by lofty walls secured.


The just shall then attend,
and pleasing tribute pay;
And sacrifice of choicest kind
upon thy altar lay.
