Representative Text

1 Lord, fill thy servant’s soul today
With pure seraphic fire,
And set his tongue at liberty,
And grant his soul’s desire.

2 O may he preach the word of God
With energy and power;
May gospel-blessings spread around,
Like a refreshing shower.

3 May God’s eternal love and grace
Be sweetly felt within;
While he is preaching Christ the Lord,
Who bore our curse and sin.

4 May burdened sinners lose their load,
And downcast souls rejoice;
May doubting souls believe today
They are Jehovah’s choice.

5 May Christ be first, and Christ be last,
And Christ be all in all,
Who died to make salvation sure,
And raise us from the fall.

6 O may thy servant now today
Proclaim salvation free,
As finished by the Son of God,
For such poor souls as we.

Herbert, Daniel , for many years a Congregational Minister at Sudbury, Suffolk (b. circa 1751, d. Aug. 29, 1833), published:— Hymns & Poems, Doctrinal and Sentimental, for the Citizens of Zion, who are longing to know their election of God, and who love Evanqelical Truths. These were published in 3 volumes. (i., 1801; ii., 1819; iii., 1827). Both hymns and poems are very indifferent in quality, and strongly Calvinistic in doctrine. (Singers & Songs, by J. Miller, 1869.) -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology  Go to person page >
