269- Take My Heart, O Father
Take my heart, O Father, take it!
Make and keep it all thine own;
Let thy Spirit melt and break it,
This proud heart of sin and stone.
Father, make it pure and lowly,
Fond of peace and far from strife;
Turning from the paths unholy,
Of this vain and sinful life.
Ever let thy grace surround me,
Strengthen me with power divine;
By thy cords of love that bound me,
Make me to be wholly thine.
May the blood of Jesus heal me,
And my sins be all forgiven;
Holy Spirit, take and seal me,
Guide me in the path to heaven.
