John Newton, 1779, from Olney Hymns, vol. 1, hymn 116
I Am, saith Christ our glorious head,|
(May we attention give)
The resurrection of the dead,
The life of all that live.
2. By faith in me, the soul receives
3. The sinner, sleeping in his grave,
4. Fulfill thy promise, gracious Lord,|
On us assembled here,
Put forth thy Spirit with the word,
And cause the dead to hear.
5. Preserve the pow'r of faith alive,
6. Thy pow'r and mercy first prevailed
7. To thee we look, to thee we bow;|
To thee, for help, we call;
Our life and resurrection thou,
Our hope, our joy, our all.
