 Quarry me deep, dear Lord

A brother in Christ sent this to me today, I am not sure of the author:



Lord Jesus, give me a deeper repentance,
a horror of sin, a dread of its approach.
Help me chastely to flee it
and jealously to resolve that my heart shall be Thine alone.

Give me a deeper trust,
that I may lose myself to find myself in Thee,
the ground of my rest, the spring of my being.
Give me a deeper knowledge of Thyself
as Saviour, Master, Lord, and King.
Give me deeper power in private prayer,
more sweetness in Thy Word,
more steadfast grip on its truth.
Give me deeper holiness in speech, thought, action,
and let me not seek moral virtue apart from Thee.
Plough deep in me, great Lord, heavenly husbandman,
that my being may be a tilled field,
the roots of grace spreading far and wide,
until Thou alone art seen in me,
Thy beauty golden like summer harvest,
Thy fruitfulness as autumn plenty.

I have no master but Thee,
no law but Thy will, no delight but Thyself,
no wealth but that Thou givest,
no good but that Thou blessest,
no peace but that Thou bestowest.

I am nothing but that Thou makest me.
I have nothing but that I receive from Thee.
I can be nothing but that grace adorns me.
Quarry me deep, dear Lord,
and then fill me to overflowing with living water.

I wish I had the talent and skill to rephrase that lyrically (only its form not its substance!) and compose a tune for it that met with today's congregational singing trends. I wonder if I would sing it for more than a song, though. God help us.

I believe this is from the Puritan's Valley of Vision but not 100% sure.

'Lord Jesus, give me a deeper repentance,

and jealously to resolve that my heart shall be Thine alone.'

I am not so sure about making songs which can desensitize the soul from our urgent need to repent and to make our salvation all the more certain. 2 Peter 1v10

I believe to experence the desire to repent and have it manifest in the way its being described a person has to be actively participating in the rejection of immoral thougts. That initial repentance can turn into a flowing torrent of repentance where we will experience the terrible fear and dread of God. I believe the Lord can hear our prayer and desire to live like this, but it has to become a way of life
