So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

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.

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.
