Hymn/Song Information

Dare we indulge our wrath and strife




Dare we indulge our wrath and strife,
And yet assume the Christian name?
Give our wild passions sway; then call
Ourselves the followers of the Lamb?


He was all gentle, meek, and mildó
Full of benevolence and love;
Nor could the rage of num'rous foes
Aught but his soft compassion move.


Not all the scoffs, nor the sharp pangs
Of crucifixion could inspire
Within his breast one vengeful thought,
Or one tumultuous passion fire.


But we, alas ! how soon the storms
Impetuous in our bosoms swell;
What stores of fuel in our breasts,
To feed those raging fires of hell.


Spirit of grace, do thou descend ;
Envy, and wrath, and clamour chase;
With thy mild influence quench these fires.
And hush the stormy winds to peace.
