Renew Me, O Eternal Light
Johann F. Ruopp, 1714; German text
|Renew me, O eternal Light,|
And let my heart and soul be bright,
Illumined with the light of grace
That issues from Thy holy face.
2. Destroy in me the lust of sin,
|3. Create in me a new heart, Lord,|
That gladly I obey Thy Word
And naught but what Thou wilt, desire;
With such new life my soul inspire.
8. Grant that I only Thee may love
