1 Lord, with glowing heart I'd praise Thee For the bliss Thy love be-stows,
For the pardoning grace that saves me, And the peace that from it flows:
Help, O God, my weak
Thou must light the flame, or
Rev. John B. Dykes, 1871
(See also FALFIELD, No. 412)
2 Praise, my soul, the God that sought thee,
Wretched wanderer, far astray; Found thee lost, and kindly brought thee
From the paths of death away: Praise, with love's devoutest feeling,
Him who saw thy guilt-born fear, And, the light of hope revealing,
Bade the blood-stained cross appear.
3 Praise Thy Saviour God that drew thee
Praise the grace whose threats alarmed thee,
Roused thee from thy fatal ease, Praise the grace whose promise warmed
Praise the grace that whispered peace.
4 Lord, this bosom's ardent feeling
Vainly would my lips express: Low before Thy footstool kneeling, Deign Thy suppliant's prayer to bless: Let Thy love, my soul's chief treasure,
Love's pure flame within me raise; And, since words can never measure, Let my life show forth Thy praise.
Francis S. Key, 1817
