O that I could my Lord receive,
Who did the world redeem,

O that I could my Lord receive,
Who did the world redeem,
Who gave his life, that I might live
A life concealed in him!

O that I could the blessing prove,
My heart’s extreme desire,
Live happy in my Saviour’s love,
And in his arms expire!

Mercy I ask to seal my peace,
That, kept by mercy’s power,
I may from every evil cease,
And never grieve thee more

Now if thy gracious will it be,
Even now, my sins remove,
And set my soul at liberty
By thy victorious love.

In answer to ten thousand prayers,
Thou pardoning God, descend;
Number me with salvation’s heirs,
My sins and troubles end.

Nothing I ask or want beside,
Of all in earth or heaven,
But let me feel thy blood applied,
And live and die forgiven.
