'Tis the Lord thus far hath brought me

'Tis the Lord thus far hath brought me

Published in 4 hymnals

Full Text

1 'Tis the Lord thus far hath brought me,
By his watchful tender care;
Sure 'tis he himself hath taught me
How to seek his face by prayer;
After so much mercy past,
Will he give me up at last?

2 True I've been a guilty creature,
And have sinned against his grace;
But forgiveness is his nature,
Though he justly hides his face:
Ere he called me, well he knew
What a heart like mine would do.

3 In the Savior's intercession
Therefore still I will confide;
Lord accept my free confession:
Though I've sinned, yet thou hast died;
This is all I have to plead,
This is all the plea I need.

The Hartford Selection of Hymns from the most approved authors, 1799
