#166: Cleanse Me

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Search me, O God, and know my heart today;

Try me, O Savior, know my thoughts, I pray.

See if there be some wicked way in me;

Cleanse me from ev’ry sin and set me free.

2

I praise Thee, Lord, for cleansing me from sin;

Fulfill Thy Word and make me pure within,

Fill  me with fire where once I burned with shame;

Grant my desire to magnify Thy name.

3

Lord, take my life and make it wholly Thine;

Fill  my poor heart with Thy great love divine.

Take all my will, my passion, self and pride;

I now surrender, Lord, — in me abide.

4

O Holy Ghost, revival comes from Thee;

Send a revival — start the work in me.

Thy Word declares Thou wilt supply our need;

For blessings now, O Lord, I humbly plead.
