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 heart resigned, submissive, meek,
My great Redeemer's throne,
Where only Christ is heard to speak,
Where Jesus reigns alone;

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 live 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.
