Make Haste, O God, My Soul to Bless

Representative Text

1 Make haste, O God, my soul to bless!
My help and my Deliv'rer Thou;
make haste for I'm in deep distress,

2 Make haste, O God! make haste to save!
For time is short, and death is nigh;
make haste ere I am in my grave,
and with the lost forever lie.

3 Make haste, for I am poor and low;
and Satan mocks my prayers and tears;
O God, in mercy be not slow,
but snatch me from my horrid fears.

4 Make haste, O God, and hear my cries;
then with the souls who seek Thy face,
and those who Thy salvation prize,
I'll magnify Thy matchless grace.
