908. Lord, Open Now My Heart to Hear

1 Lord, open Thou my heart to hear,
And through Your Word to me draw near;
Let me Your Word e'er pure retain;
Let me Your child and heir remain.

2 [Protected by copyright]

3 To God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, Three in One.
Shall glory, praise, and honor be
Now and throughout eternity.
