472. C. M. Wesleyan. For Purity of Heart.
1 O, for a heart to praise my God,
A heart from sin set free;
A heart that always feels how good,
Thou, Lord, hast been to me.
2 O for a humble, contrite heart,
Believing, true, and clean,
Which neither life nor death can part
From him who dwells within; --
3 A heart in every thought renewed,
And full of love divine,
Perfect, and right, and pure and good,
Conformed, O Lord, to thine.
4 Thy temper, gracious Lord, impart;
Come quickly from above;
O, write thy name upon my heart,
Thy name, O God, is Love.
