OFT I in my heart have said,

By A Collection of Hymns

      7s & 6s. Romans x. 6 - 9.
      1 OFT I in my heart have said,
      Who shall ascend on high,
      Mount to Christ, my glorious Head,
      And bring him from the sky?
      Borne on contemplation's wing,
      Surely I shall find him there,
      Where the angels praise their King,
      And gain the morning-star

      2 Oft I in my heart have said,
      Who to the deep shall stoop,
      Sink with Christ among the dead,
      From thence to bring him up?
      Could I but my heart prepare,
      By unfeigned humility,
      Christ would quickly enter there,
      And ever dwell with me.

      3 But the righteousness of faith
      Hath taught me better things:
      "Inward turn thine eyes," it saith,
      (While Christ to me it brings)
      "Christ is ready to impart
      Life to all, for life who sigh;
      In thy mouth, and in thy heart,
      The word is ever nigh."
