A HYMN FOR TODAY – O For a Heart To Praise My God


O for a heart to praise my God,

A heart from sin set free,

A heart that always feels the 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 heart in every thought renewed,

And full of love divine,

Complete and right and pure and good,

A copy, Lord, of Thine.

Thy nature, gracious Lord, impart;

Come quickly from above;

Write Thy new name upon my heart,

Thy new, best name of Love.

CMD, Charles Wesley, 1742

Tune: GOSHEN, 1789, arr. Charles Willis, 2011
