Almighty God, Whose Only Son
Almighty God, Whose only Son
O’er sin and death the triumph won,
And ever lives to intercede
For souls who Thy sweet
In His dear Name to Thee we pray
For all who err and go astray,
For sinners, wheresoe’er they be,
Who do not
serve and honor Thee.
There are who never yet have heard
The tidings of Thy blessèd Word,
But still in heathen darkness
Without one thought of Heav’n or hell.
And some within Thy sacred fold
To holy things are dead and cold,
the precious hours of life
In selfish ease, or toil, or strife;
And many a quickened soul within
There lurks the secret love of
A wayward will, or anxious fears,
Or lingering taint of bygone years.
O give repentance true and deep
To all Thy lost
and wandering sheep,
And kindle in their hearts the fire
Of holy love and pure desire.
That so from angel hosts above
rise a sweeter song of love,
And we, with all the blest, adore
Thy Name, O God, for evermore.
