HYMN CLIX.

6.6.8.6 D

James Montgomery

For Spiritual Help and Health.

Lord! give us ears to hear

What Thy good Spirit saith,

With reverence and with godly fear,

With meekness and with faith;

163

That so, the joyful sound,

Our willing minds may learn,

And, where iniquities abound,

Things excellent discern.

Lord, give us eyes to see

The wonders of Thy Law,

Its justice, truth, and purity;

That touch'd with holy awe,

Conscience no longer dumb,

Sin's guilt and curse may own;

Then from the storm of wrath to come,

Cling to the Cross alone.

Lord, give us hearts to feel

The bliss of pardoning love,

The Spirit's witness, and the seal

Of sonship from above;

So shall our lips express,

So in our actions shine,

The beauty of true holiness,

The proof that we are Thine.
