O God, to whom in flesh revealed

1 O God, to whom in flesh reveal'd
The helpless all for succour came;
The sick to be reliev'd and heal'd,
And found salvation in thy name.

2 With publicans and harlots I,
In these thy Spirit's gospel days,
To thee, the sinner's friend, draw nigh,
And humbly sue for saving grace.

3 Thou seest me helpless and distressed,
Feeble, and faint, and blind, and poor;
Weary I come to thee for rest,
And sick of sin implore a cure.

4 My sin's incurable disease,
Thou, Jesus, thou alone canst heal;
Inspire me with thy power and peace,
And pardon on my conscience seal.

5 A touch, a word, a look from thee,
Can turn my heart and make it clean;
Purge the foul inbred leprosy,
And save me from my bosom-sin.

6 Lord, if thou wilt, I do believe,
Thou canst the saving grace impart;
Thou canst this instant now forgive,
And stamp thine image on my heart.

7 My heart, which now to thee I raise,
I know thou canst this moment cleanse;
The deepest stains of sin efface,
And drive the evil spirit hence.

8 Be it according to thy word!
Accomplish now thy work in me;
And let my soul, to health restor'd,
Devote its little all to thee!

In 1716 he went to Westminster School, being provided with a home and board by his elder brother Samuel, then usher at the school, until 1721, when he was elected King's Scholar, and as such received his board and education free. In 1726 Charles Wesley was elected to a Westminster studentship at Christ Church, Oxford, where he took his degree in 1729, and became a college tutor.
