Lord's Day Evening

Representative Text

1 When, O dear Jesus, when shall I
Behold Thee all serene;
Blest in perpetual holy day,
Without a veil between!

2 Assist me, while I wander here,
Amidst a world of cares;
Incline my heart to pray in love,
And then accept my prayers.

3 Release my soul from every chain,
No more hell's captive led;
And pardon Thy repenting child,
For whom the Savior bled.

4 Spare me, O God, O spare the soul,
That gives it self to Thee:
Take all that I possess below,
And give Thyself to me.

5 Thy Spirit, O my Father, give,
To be my Guide and Friend,
To light my way to ceaseless joys,
To rest without an end.

John Cennick was born at Reading, Berkshire, in the year 1717. He became acquainted with Wesley and Whitefield, and preached in the Methodist connection. On the separation of Wesley and Whitefield he joined the latter. In 1745, he attached himself to the Moravians, and made a tour in Germany to fully acquaint himself with the Moravian doctrines. He afterwards ministered in Dublin, and in the north of Ireland. He died in London, in 1755, and was buried in the Moravian Cemetery, Chelsea. He was the author of many hymns, some of which are to be found in every collection. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872.… Go to person page >
