Representative Text

1 Love of God, so great and holy,
Grace of God, so full and free,
Templed in a Child so lowly,
Canst Thou come and dwell in me?

2 Sin has held a long dominion,
Darkened thought, debased desire,
Fettered will, corrupted conscience,
Worshipped with unholy fire.

3 I am all defiled and guilty;
Yet Thy temple, Lord, would be!
Stronger than the strong man enter;
Bind my foe; deliver me.

4 Love of God, so great and holy,
Grace of Chris, so full and free,
While I kneel, Thy child and lowly,
Make Thy promise good in me.
