I ask the gift of righteousness, The sin subduing power

I ask the gift of righteousness, The sin subduing power

Author: Charles Wesley
Tune: DOWNS (Mason)
Published in 63 hymnals

Representative Text

1 I ask the gift of righteousness,
The sin-subduing power,
Power to believe, and go in peace,
And never grieve thee more.

2 I ask the blood-bought pardon sealed,
The liberty from sin,
The grace infused, the love revealed,
The kingdom fixed within.

3 Thou hear'st me for salvation pray,
Thou seest my heart's desire;
Make ready in thy powerful day,
Thy fullness I required.

4 My vehement souls cries out oppressed,
Impatient to be freed;
Nor can I, Lord, nor will I rest
Till I am saved indeed.

5 Art thou not able to convert,
Art thou not willing too,
To change this old rebellious heart,
To conquer and renew?

6 Thou canst, thou wilt, I dare believe:
So arm me with thy power,
That I to sin shall never cleave,
Shall never feel it more.
