The Olive Leaf-185, The Narrow Way


Note that the book from which this song was taken is currently out of print.

1. O God most merciful and true,
Thy nature to my soul impart!
'Stablish with me the covenant new,
And write perfection on my heart!
To real believers be restored,
Oh, let me gain my Savior's mind!
And, in the knowledge of my Lord,
Fullness of eternal life find!

2. Remember, Lord, my sins no more,
That them I may no more forget;
But sunk in guiltless shame adore,
With speechless wonder at thy feet!
O'erwhelmed by thy stupendous grace,
I shall not, in thy presence, move;
But breathe unutterable praise,,
And rapturous awe, and silent love.
