Hymn/Song Information

BOOK OF LIFE




Dear Lord, if in the book of life
My worthless name should stand,
Written in fairest characters,
By thine unerring hand:


My soul thou wilt by grace prepare
From crowns above the skies;
And on the road, from thy rich stores,
Wilt grant me fresh supplies.


Then I to thee in sweetest strains,
Will grateful anthems raise;
But lifes too short, my powers too weak,
To utter half thy praise.


Had I ten thousand thousand tongues,
Not one should silent be,
Had I ten thousand thousand hearts,
Id give them all to thee.
