A Saturday’s Prayer


Can be sung to the tune of O Sacred Head, Now Wounded.

Lord Jesus, God incarnate
True God, and truest man
The two in one united
To be Atonement’s Lamb
What praises can we offer
To sing Thy worthiness?
Eternity’s songs will falter
To match Thy blessedness

Dear Saving Son, Redeemer
Forgive my faithless heart
That fails in times of trial
To trust in Whom thou art
Thou sum of Love’s perfections
God’s Word and Wisdom full
Enlarge my soul’s affection
And sever deception’s pull

High Priest and Intercessor
In all my weakness, plead
Thy Spirit’s keeping power
According to all my need
Christ’s light amid the darkness
Christ’s strength when I am weak
Christ’s holiness in temptation
Christ’s words when e’re I speak

Let praise and adoration
O’er flow my heart and mind
Till naught but all Thy beauty
Remains for Thee to find
Transform and full conform me
Purge all that’s base and mean
And bring me to Thy glory
Till Christ alone is seen
