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 Thy blood,
So freely shed for me.
A humble, lowly, contrite heart,
Believing, true and clean,
Which neither life nor death can part
From Him that 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 nature, gracious Lord, impart -
Come quickly from above;
Write Thy new name upon my heart,
Thy new best name of Love.
