O for a heart to praise my God
A heart from sin set free
A heart that always feels Thy blood
So freely shed for me.
A heart resigned, submissive, meek
My great Redeemer's throne
Where only Christ is heard to speak
Where Jesus reigns alone.
A humble, lowly, contrite, heart
Believing, true and clean
Which neither life nor death can part
From Christ who dwells within.
A heart in every thought renewed
And full of love divine
Perfect and right and pure and good
A copy, Lord, of Thine.
Thy tender heart is still the same
And melts at human woe
Jesus, for thee distressed I am
I want Thy love to know.
My heart, Thou know'st, can never rest
Till Thou create my peace
Till of mine Eden repossest
From self, and sin, I cease.
Fruit of Thy gracious lips, on me
Bestow that peace unknown
The hidden manna, and the tree
Of life, and the white stone.
Thy nature, gracious Lord, impart
Come quickly from above
Write Thy new name upon my heart
Thy new, best name of Love.
The lyrics to "O For A Heart To Praise My God" is by Charles Wesley.
