384- O God, Mine Inmost Soul Convert
O God, mine inmost soul convert,
And deeply on my thoughtful heart
Eternal things impress;
Give me to feel their solemn weigh,
And save me ere it be too late;
Wake me to righteousness.
Before me place in dread array
The pomp of that tremendous day
When Thou with clouds shalt come
To judge the nations at Thy bar;
And tell me, Lord, shall I be there,
To hear Thy welcome home?
Be this my one great business here,
With serious industry and fear
Eternal bliss t' ensure
Thy utmost counsel to fulfill,
And suffer all Thy righteousness will,
And to the end endure.
Then, Father, then my soul receive,
Transported from this vale, to live
And reign with Thee above,
Where faith is sweetly lost in sight,
And hope in full, supreme delight,
And everlasting love.
