GREAT God! to me the sight afford

By A Collection of Hymns

      C.M. Exodus xxxiv. 5, 6.
      1 GREAT God! to me the sight afford
      To him of old allowed;
      And let my faith behold its Lord
      Descending in a cloud.

      2 In that revealing Spirit come down,
      Thine attributes proclaim,
      And to my inmost soul make known
      The glories of thy name.

      3 Jehovah, Christ, I thee adore,
      Who gav'st my soul to be!
      Fountain of being, and of power,
      And great in majesty.

      4 The Lord, the mighty God, thou art;
      But let me rather prove
      That name in-spoken to my heart,
      That favourite name of Love.

      5 Merciful God, thyself proclaim
      In this polluted breast;
      Mercy is thy distinguished name,
      Which suits a sinner best.

      6 Our misery doth for pity call,
      Our sin implores thy grace;
      An and thou art merciful to all
      Our lost, apostate race.
