BUT can it be, that I should prove

By A Collection of Hymns

      8s & 6s.
      1 BUT can it be, that I should prove
      For ever faithful to thy love,
      From sin for ever cease?
      I thank thee for the blessed hope;
      It lifts my drooping spirits up,
      It gives me back my peace.

      2 In thee, O Lord, I put my trust,
      Mighty, and merciful, and just;
      Thy sacred word is passed;
      And I, who dare thy word receive,
      Without committing sin shall live,
      Shall live to God at last.

      3 I rest in thine almighty power;
      The name of Jesus is a tower,
      That hides my life above:
      Thou canst, thou wilt my helper be;
      My confidence is all in thee,
      The faithful God of love.

      4 While still to thee for help I call,
      Thou wilt not suffer me to fall,
      Thou canst not let me sin;
      And thou shalt give me power to pray
      Till all my sins are purged away,
      And all thy mind brought in.

      5 Wherefore, in never-ceasing prayer,
      My soul to thy continual care
      I faithfully commend;
      Assured that thou through life shalt save,
      And show thyself beyond the grave
      My everlasting Friend.
