Representative Text

1 All glory to the dying Lamb,
And never-ceasing praise,
While angels live to know thy name,
Or men to feel thy grace.

2 With this cold stony heart of mine,
Jesus, to thee I flee!
And to thy grace my soul resign,
To be renew'd by Thee.

3 Give me to hide my blushing face,
While thy dear cross appears;
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness,
And melt my eyes to tears.

4 O may the uncorrupted seed
Abide and reign within;
And thy life-giving word forbid
My new-born soul to sin.

5 Father, I wait before thy throne;
Call me a child of thine!
Send down the spirit of thy Son
To form my heart divine.

6 There shed thy promis'd love abroad,
And make my comfort strong;
Then shall I say, "My Father, God!"
With an unwav'ring tongue.
