More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

628. Come, My Soul, Thy Suit Prepare

1 Come, my soul, thy suit prepare:
Jesus loves to answer prayer;
he himself has bid thee pray,
therefore will not say thee nay;
therefore will not say thee nay.

2 Thou art coming to a King,
large petitions with thee bring;
for his grace and pow'r are such,
nNone can ever ask too much;
none can ever ask too much.

3 With my burden I begin:
"Lord, remove this load of sin;
let thy blood, for sinners spilt,
set my conscience free from guilt;
set my conscience free from guilt.

4 "Lord, I come to thee for rest,
take possession of my breast;
there thy blood-bought right maintain,
and without a rival reign;
and without a rival reign.

5 "While I am a pilgrim here,
let thy love my spirit cheer;
as my Guide, my Guard, my Friend,
lead me to my journey's end;
lead me to my journey's end.

6 "Show me what I have to do,
ev'ry hour my strength renew:
let me live a life of faith,
let me die thy people's death,
let me die thy people's death."
