591. O for a Heart to Praise My God

1 O for a heart to praise my God,
A heart from sin set free,
A heart that always feels your blood
So freely shed for me.

2 A heart, resigned, submissive, meek,
My great Redeemer’s throne,
Where only Christ is heard to speak,
Where Jesus reigns alone:

3 A humble, lowly, contrite heart,
Believing, true, and clean,
Which neither life nor death can part
From Him who dwells within:

4 A heart in ev'ry thought renewed,
A heart whose love endures;
So perfect, right, and pure, and good,
A copy, Lord, of yours.

5 Your nature, gracious Lord, impart;
Come quickly from above,
Write your new name upon my heart,
Your new, best name of love.
