A HYMN FOR TODAY – Purify Us

A HYMN FOR TODAY

Purify Us

LORD, Restorer, Hand unseen,
Come and make Your priesthood clean;
Come refine our every part;
Purify us, thought and heart.

In our weakness and desire,
Melt us with Your cleansing fire;
Burn temptation from our minds;
Leave Your love and peace behind.

To complete us, Father, bless:
Make us gifts of righteousness,
Honored in the work we do,
Golden vessels fit for You.

7.7.7.7 – M.W. Bassford, 2001

Tune – C.E. Couchman, 2001

#576 in Psalms, Hymns, and Spritual Songs, 2012

PURIFY US calls upon God to cleanse His people. Only after He burns away the impurities that mar their makeup can they be suitable for honorable roles in His service. (Malachi 3:2-4; 2 Timothy 2:20-21)
