Christ My Song - 1150
Lord! whose love, in power excelling - Third Sunday after Epiphany (Reginald Heber/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Third Sunday after Epiphany.
2. From the filth of vice and folly,
from infuriate passion's rage,
evil thoughts and hopes unholy,
heedless youth and selfish age;
3. from the lusts whose deep pollutions
Adam's ancient taint disclose,
from the Tempter's dark intrusions,
restless doubt and blind repose;
4. from the miser's cursed treasure,
from the drunkard's jest obscene,
from the world, its pomp and pleasure,
Jesus! Master! make us clean!
Reginald Heber, Heber's Hymns, 1870, 23.
