Ask What I Shall Give Thee
John Newton, 1779, from Olney Hymns, vol. 1, hymn 31
|Come, my soul, thy suit prepare,|
Jesus loves to answer prayer;
He Himself has bid thee pray,
Therefore will not say thee nay.
2. Thou art coming to a King,
3. With my burden I begin:
|4. Lord, I come to Thee for rest,|
Take possession of my breast;
There Thy blood-bought right maintain
And without a rival reign.
5. As the image in the glass
6. While I am a pilgrim here,
|7. Show me what I have to do;|
Every hour my strength renew.
Let me live a life of faith;
Let me die Thy people's death.
