Eph.4.30
Versi 1
1
Stay, Thou insulted Spirit, stay,
Though I have done Thee such despite,
Nor cast the sinner quite away,
Nor take Thine everlasting flight.
2
Though I have steeled my stubborn heart,
And still shook off my guilty fears,
And vexed, and urged Thee to depart,
For many long rebellious years;
3
Though I have most unfaithful been
Of all who e‘er Thy grace received,
Ten thousand times Thy goodness seen,
Ten thousand times Thy goodness grieved;
4
Yet O! the chief of sinners spare,
In honor of my great High Priest,
Nor in Thy righteous anger swear
T‘exclude me from Thy people‘s rest.
5
This only woe I deprecate.
This only plague I pray remove;
Nor leave me in my lost estate,
Nor curse me with this want of love.
6
If yet Thou canst my sins forgive,
From now, O Lord, relieve my woes,
Into Thy rest of love receive,
And bless me with calm repose.
7
Now, Lord, my weary soul release,
Upraise me with Thy gracious hand.
And guide into Thy perfect peace,
And bring me to the promised land.
