A Hymn to God the Father

…………………Ben Johnson

Hear me, O God!

…..A broken heart

…..Is my best part;

…..Use still thy rod

…..That I may prove

…..Therein, thy love

 

If thou hadst not

…..Been stern to me,

…..But left me free,

…..I had forgot

…..Myself and thee.

 

For sin’s so sweet,

…..As minds ill bent

…..Rarely repent,

…..Until they meet

…..Their punishment.

 

Who more can crave

…..Than thou hast done:

…..That gav’st a Son,

…..To free a slave?

…..First made of nought;

…..With all since bought.

 

Sin, Death, and Hell

…..His glorious Name

…..Quite overcame;

…..Yet I rebel,

…..And slight the same.

 

But I’ll come in,

…..Before my loss,

…..Me further toss,

…..As sure to sin

…..Under His Cross.
