The Resurrection and the Life
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.
