5197 7. 7 7
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
