William Cowper, 1779, from Olney Hymns, vol., 1, hymn 71
The Lord proclaims his grace abroad!|
Behold, I change your hearts of stone;
Each shall renounce his idol god,
And serve, henceforth, the Lord alone.
2. My grace, a flowing stream, proceeds
3. My truth the great design insures,|
I give myself away to you;
You shall be mine, I will be yours,
Your God unalterably true.
4. Yet not unsought, or unimplored,
5. From the first breath of life divine,|
Down to the last expiring hour;
The gracious work shall all be mine,
Begun and ended in my pow'r.
