Wilt Thou not yet to me reveal

Thy new, unutterable name?
Tell me, I still beseech Thee, tell ?

To know it now, resolved I am :
Wrestling, I will not let Thee yo,
Till I Thy name, Thy nature know.

What though my sinking flesh complain,

And murmur to contend so long, I rise superior to my pain ;

When I am weak, then am I strong : And when my all of strength shall fail, I shall with the God-man prevail.

My strength is gone, my nature dies,

I sink beneath Thy mighty hand;
Faint, to revive, and fall, to rise ;

I fall, and yet by faith I stand,-
I stand, and will not let Thee go,
Till i Thy name, Thy nature know.

Yield to me now,- for I am weak,

But confident in self-despair ; Speak to my heart, in blessings speak;

Be conquered by my instant prayer ; Speak, or Thou never hence shalt move, And tell me, if Thy name be Love.

'Tis Love ! ’tis Love! Thou diedst for me;

I hear Thy whisper in my heart :
The morning breaks, the shadows flee;

Pure, Universal Love, Thou art :
To me, to all, Thy bowels move :
Thy nature and Thy name is Love.

My prayer hath power with God; the grace

Unspeakable I now receive ; Through faith I see Thee face to face ;

I see Thee face to face, and live; In vain I have not wept and strove ; Thy nature and thy name is Love.

I know Thee, Saviour, who Thou art,

Jesus, the feeble sinner's friend;
Nor wilt Thou with the night depart,

But stay, and love me to the end :
Thy mercies never shall remove ;
Thy nature and Thy name is Love.

The Sun of Righteousness on me

Hath rose, with healing in His wings ;
Wither’d my nature's strength, from Thee

My soul its life and succour brings ; .
My help is all laid up above;
Thy nature and Thy name is Love.

Contented now, upon my thigh

I halt, till life's short journey end ; All helplessness, all weakness, I

On Thee alone for strength depend; Nor have I power from Thee to move; Thy nature and Thy name is Love,

Lame as I am, I take the prey ;

Hell, earth, and sin, with ease o'ercome ; I leap for joy, pursue my way,

And, as a bounding hart, fly home;
Through all eternity to prove,
Thy nature and Thy name is Love.


O FOR a heart to praise my God,

A heart from sin set free!
A heart that always feels Thy blood,

So freely shed for me !

A heart resign’d, submissive, meek,

My great Redeemer's throne ; Where only Christ is heard to speak,

Where Jesus reigns alone !

An humble, lowly, contrite heart,

Believing, true, and clean !
Which neither death nor life can part

From Him that dwells within !

A heart in every thought renewed,

And full of love divine; Perfect, and right, and pure, and good,

A copy, Lord, of Thine!

Fruit of Thy gracious lips, on me

Bestow that peace unknown ; The hidden manna, and the tree

Of life, and the white stone.

Thy nature, gracious Lord, impart,

Come quickly from above ; Write Thy new name upon my heart,

Thy new, best name of Love.
