Hymn 115

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 128 hymnals Scripture: Romans 7:24 First Line: Lord, how secure my conscience was Lyrics: Lord, how secure my conscience was, And felt no inward dread! I was alive without the law, And thought my sins were dead. My hopes of heav'n were firm and bright, But since the precept came With a convincing power and light, I find how vile I am. [My guilt appeared but small before, Till terribly I saw How perfect, holy, just, and pure, Was thine eternal law. Then felt my soul the heavy load, My sins revived again I had provoked a dreadful God, And all my hopes were slain.] I'm like a helpless captive, sold Under the power of sin I cannot do the good I would, Nor keep my conscience clean. My God, I cry with every breath For some kind power to save, To break the yoke of sin and death, And thus redeem the slave.

And can it be, that I should gain

Author: Charles Wesley (1707-1788) Meter: Appears in 249 hymnals Scripture: Romans 7:14-25 Lyrics: 1 And can it be, that I should gain an interest in the Saviour's blood? Died he for me, who caused his pain -- for me, who him to death pursued? Amazing love! how can it be that thou, my God, shouldst die for me? 2 'Tis mystery all: the Immortal dies! Who can explore his strange design? In vain the firstborn seraph tries to sound the depths of love divine. 'Tis mercy all! Let earth adore, let angel minds inquire no more. 3 He left his Father's throne above, -- so free, so infinite his grace -- emptied himself of all but love, and bled for Adam's helpless race: 'tis mercy all, immense and free; for, O my God, it found out me! 4 Long my imprisoned spirit lay fast bound in sin and nature's night; thine eye diffused a quickening ray; I woke, the dungeon flamed with light; my chains fell off, my heart was free, I rose, went forth, and followed thee. 5 No condemnation now I dread; Jesus, and all in him, is mine! Alive in him, my living Head, and clothed in righteousness divine, bold I approach the eternal throne, and claim the crown, through Christ, my own.

Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing

Author: Robert Robinson (1735-1790) Meter: D Appears in 2,048 hymnals Scripture: Romans 7:15-25 Lyrics: 1 Come, thou Fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing thy grace; streams of mercy, never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise. Teach me some melodious measure, sung by flaming tongues above; O the vast, the boundless treasure of my God's unchanging love. 2 Here I make faith's affirmation: thus far by thy help I've come, and I hope, by thy good pleasure, safely to arrive at home. Jesus sought me when a stranger, wandering from the fold of God; he, to rescue me from danger, interposed his precious blood. 3 O to grace how great a debtor daily I'm constrained to be! Let thy goodness, like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to thee. Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love; take my heart, O take and seal it, seal it for thy courts above.

Approach, my soul, the mercy seat

Author: John Newton (1725-1807) Meter: Appears in 582 hymnals Scripture: Romans 7:23 Lyrics: 1 Approach, my soul, the mercy seat where Jesus answers prayer; there humbly fall before his feet, for none can perish there. 2 Thy promise is my only plea; with this I venture nigh: thou callest burdened souls to thee, and such, O Lord, am I. 3 Bowed down beneath a load of sin, by Satan sorely pressed, by war without, and fears within, I come to thee for rest. 4 Be thou my shield and hiding place, that, sheltered near thy side, I may my fierce accuser face, and tell him thou hast died. 5 O wondrous love! to bleed and die, to bear the cross and shame, that guilty sinners, such as I, might plead thy gracious name!

Thou Hidden Love of God

Author: John Wesley (1703-1791); Gerhard Tersteegen (1697-1769) Meter: Appears in 245 hymnals Scripture: Romans 7:15 First Line: Thou hidden love of God, whose height Lyrics: 1 Thou hidden love of God, whose height, whose depth unfathomed, no one knows, I see from far thy beauteous light, inly I sigh for thy repose; my heart is pained, nor can it be at rest till it finds rest in thee. 2 Thy secret voice invites me still the sweetness of thy yoke to prove; and fain I would; but, though my will seem fixed, yet wide my passions rove; yet hindrances strew all the way; I aim at thee, yet from thee stray. 3 'Tis mercy all, that thou hast brought my mind to seek its peace in thee; yet, while I seek but find thee not, no peace my wandering soul shall see. Oh, when shall all my wanderings end, and all my steps to thee-ward tend? 4 Is there a thing beneath the sun that strives with thee my heart to share? Ah! tear it thence, and reign alone, the Lord of every motion there; then shall my heart from earth be free, when it hath found repose in thee.
