260. O for a heart to praise my God

C.M.

Beatitudo:

John Bacchus Dykes, 1875

Charles Wesley, 1742;

Alt.

O for a heart to praise my God,

A heart from sin set free!

A heart that's sprinkled with the blood

So freely shed for me;

A heart resigned, submissive, meek,

My dear Redeemer's throne,

Where only Christ is heard to speak,

Where Jesus reigns alone;

An humble, lowly, contrite heart,

Believing, true, and clean;

Which neither life nor death can part

From him that dwells within.

A heart in every thought renewed,

And full of love divine,

Perfect, and right, and pure, and good,

A copy, Lord, of thine!

Thy nature, gracious Lord, impart;

Come quickly from above;

Write thy new Name upon my heart,

Thy new, best name of Love.

Amen.
