Author: Charles Wesley
Tune: EPWORTH (C. Wesley)
Published in 37 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Jesu Redeemer, Saviour, Lord,
The weary sinner's friend,
Come to my help, pronounce the word,
And bid my troubles end.

2 Deliv'rance to my soul proclaim,
And life and liberty:
Shed forth the virtue of thy name,
And Jesus prove to me.

3 Thy pow'rful Spirit can subdue
Unconquerable sin;
Cleanse my foul heart, and make it new,
And write thy law within.

4 While, full of anguish and disease,
My weak, distemper'd soul
Thy love compassionately sees,
O let it make me whole!

5 To thy great name if all things now
A trembling homage pay,
Make my obdurate spirit bow,
My stiff-neck'd will obey.

6 Sworn to destroy, let earth assail;
Nearer to save thou art;
Stronger than all the pow'rs of hell,
And greater than my heart.
