Come, Lord, from above

Come, Lord, from above

Representative Text

1 Come, Lord, from above,
The mountains remove,
O'rturn all that hinders the course of thy love:
My bosom inspire,
Inkindle the fire,
And wrap my whole souls in the flames of desire.

2 I languish and pine
For the comfort divine,
O when shall I say, my Beloved is mine!
I have chose the good part,
My portion thou art,
O love, I have found thee, O God, in my heart.

3 For this my heart signs,
Nothing else can suffice;
How, Lord, can I purchase the pearl of great price?
It cannot be bought,
And thou know'st I have nought,
Not an action, a word, or a truly good thought.

4 But I hear a voice say,
Without money ye may
Receive it, whoever have nothing to pay:
Who on Jesus relies,
Without money or price,
The pearl of forgiveness and holiness buys.

5 The blessing is free,
So, Lord, let it be;
I yield that thy love should be given to me,
I freely receive,
What thou freely dost give,
And consent in thy love, in thine Eden to live.

6 The gift I embrace,
The give I praise,
And ascribe my salvation to Jesus's grace;
It came from above,
The foretaste I prove,
And I soon shall receive all thy fulness of love.

In 1716 he went to Westminster School, being provided with a home and board by his elder brother Samuel, then usher at the school, until 1721, when he was elected King's Scholar, and as such received his board and education free. In 1726 Charles Wesley was elected to a Westminster studentship at Christ Church, Oxford, where he took his degree in 1729, and became a college tutor.
