I. My God, my God, to thee I cry; Thee on - ly would I know;
Thy pur - i - fy - ing blood ap - ply, And wash me white as snow.
" Purge me—and I shall be clean.'
Psalm li. 7.
I My God. my God, to thee I cry;
Thee only would I know;
Thy purifying blood apply,
And wash me white as snow.
2 Touch me, and make the leper clean;
Purge my iniquity :
Unless thou wash my soul from sin,
I have no part in thee.
3 But art thou not already mine ?
Answer, if mine thou art!
Whisper within, thou Love Divine,
And cheer our drooping heart.
4 Behold for me the Victim bleeds,
His wounds are open wide ;
For me the blood of sprinkling pleads,
And speaks me justified.
.-/ perfect heart.
O for a heart to praise my 1 i
A heart from sin set free !
A heart that always feels thy blood,
So freely spilt for me !
A heart resigned, submissive meek,
Mv great Redeemer's throne;
Where onlv Christ is heard to speak,
Wh'-re Ic'siis reigns alone.
O for a lfiwlv, contrite heart.
Relieving, true, and clean.
Which neither lif- nor death can part
From him that dwells within !
4 A heart in every thought renewed,
And full of love divine ;
Perfect, and right, and pure, and good,
A copy, Lord, of thine.
5 Thy nature, gracious Lord, impart;
Come quickly from above;
Write thy new name upon my heart,
Thy new, best name of Love.
227 The paradise of love CM.
[Tune, Burlin, page 113. C. M. ]
I O Jesus! at thy feet we wait,
Till thou shalt bid us rise,
Restored to our unsinning state
To love's sweet paradise.
2 Saviour from sin, we thee receive;
from all indwelling sin,
Thy blood, we steadfastly believe,
Shall make us thoroughly clean.
3 Since thou wouldst have us free from sin
And pure as those above,
Make haste to tiring thy nature in,
And perfect us in love !
4 The counsel of thy love fulfil;
Come quickly, gracious Lord!
lie it according to thy will,
According to thy word.
5 O that the perfect grace were given,
Thv love dilluscd abroad!
O that our hearts were all a heaven,
For ever filled with God !
