Prayer for Entire Purification.
Forever here my rest shall be,
Close to thy bleeding side;
'Tis all my hope and all my plea,
|For me the Savior died.|
2 My dying Savior and my God,
Fountain for guilt and sin,
Sprinkle me ever with thy blood,
And cleanse and keep me clean.
3 Wash me and make me thus thine own,
Wash me, and mine thou art!
Wash me, but not my feet alone,
My hands, my head, my heart!
4 Th' atonement of thy blood apply
Till faith to sight improve,
Till hope in full fruition die,
And all my soul be love.
Charles Wesley, 1740.
