GOD of all power, and truth, and grace,

By A Collection of Hymns

      L.M. Ezekiel xxxvi. 25, &c.
      1 GOD of all power, and truth, and grace,
      Which shall from age to age endure,
      Whose word, when heaven and earth shall pass,
      Remains and stands for ever sure;

      2 That I thy mercy may proclaim,
      That all mankind thy truth may see,
      Hallow thy great and glorious name,
      And perfect holiness in me.

      3 Thy sanctifying Spirit pour,
      To quench my thirst, and make me clean;
      Now, Father, let the gracious shower
      Descend, and make me pure from sin.

      4 Purge me from every sinful blot;
      My idols all be cast aside;
      Cleanse me from every sinful thought,
      From all the filth of self and pride.

      5 Give me a new, a perfect heart,
      From doubt, and fear, and sorrow free;
      The mind which was in Christ impart,
      And let my spirit cleave to thee.

      6 O take this heart of stone away!
      Thy sway it doth not, cannot own;
      In me no longer let it stay,
      O take away this heart of stone!

      7 O that I now, from sin released,
      Thy word may to the utmost prove,
      Enter into the promised rest,
      The Canaan of thy perfect love!
