|GOD of love, that hearest prayer,
Kindly for Thy people care,
Who on Thee alone depend;
Love us, save us to the end.
|2||Save us, in the prosperous hour,
From the flattering tempter’s power,
From his unsuspected wiles,
From the world’s pernicious smiles.
|3||Cut off our dependence vain
On the help of feeble man,
Every arm of flesh remove;
Stay us only on Thy love.
|4||Never let the world break in;
Fix a mighty gulf between;
To the admiring world unknown,
Prized and loved by God alone.
|5||Let us still to Thee look up,
Thee, Thy Israel’s strength and hope;
Nothing know or seek beside
Jesus and Him crucified.
|Charles Wesley, 1707-88|
