Eccoci Nel Tuo Cospetto

Representative Text

1 Eccoci nel Tuo cospetto—
giunti siamo, o Dio d’amor,
Sii Tu solo benedetto—
da ciascun di noi col cuor.
Il Tuo Nome sia esaltato—
predicato sia il vangel
Sia d’un cuor glorificato—
il prezioso e santo Agnel.

2 Facci, o Dio, realizzare—
che presente è il Re dei re
Qui nel mezzo per guidare—
questo culto solo in Te,
O Signore, nostra rocca—
Noi Te sol siam qui adorar,
Fa che aperta sia ogni bocca—
il Tuo nome a celebrar.

3 Tu che investighi ogni cuore—
o Signor, per Tuo voler,
Il messaggio tuo d’amore—
manda a noi pien di poter.
Da Te solo l’aspettiamo—
pel Divin Consolator.
In Te sol noi confidiamo—
deh, tu ciba i nostri cuor.

Renatus Sabbati die, Maii 24, 1752, per predicationem potentem Georgii Whitefield. Et gustatis doloribus renovationis duos annos mensesque septem, absolutionem plenam gratuitamque, per sanguinem pretiosum i secula seculorum. Amen." He soon after began to pr… Go to person page >
