Christ My Song - 1906
Come, O Lord, the heavens rending
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Come, O Lord, the heavens rending.
"Oh! that thou wouldst rend the heavens." (Isaiah 64,1)
2. Thou from guilt and curse hast freed us;
with the bread of heaven feed us;
in the path of wisdom lead us;
lead us, Lord!
3. From thy throne of mercy hear us;
with thy holy presence cheer us;
now and always be thou near us,
when we call.
Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 147.
