Oh for a heart to praise my God!
(Charles Wesley/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Oh for a heart to praise my God!

1. Oh for a heart to praise my God!
  a heart from sin set free!
a heart that always feels thy blood,
  so freely spilt for me:

2. a heart resigned, submissive, meek,
  my great Redeemer's throne:
where only Christ is heard to speak,
  where Jesus reigns alone:

3. a humble, lowly, contrite heart,
  believing, true, and clean;
which neither life nor death can part
  from him that dwells within:

4. a heart in every thought renewed,
  and full of love divine;
prefect and right, and pure and good,
  a copy, Lord, of thine.

5. My heart, thou knowest, can never rest
  till thou create my peace;
till, of my Eden repossessed,
  from every sin I cease.

6. Fruit of thy gracious lips, on me
  bestow that peace unknown;
the hidden manna, and the tree
  of life, and the white stone.

7. Thy nature, gracious Lord, impart;
  come quickly from above;
write thy new name upon my heart,
  thy new, best name of Love.

Charles Wesley, in: Schaff, Philip: Christ in Song, 1870, 106.
