139 (7.7.7.7.) William Cowper

Hark, my soul, it is the Lord;

'Tis the Saviour, hear His word;

Jesus speaks, and speaks to thee,

"Say, poor sinner, lov'st thou me?

"I delivered thee when bound,

And when bleeding healed thy wound;

Sought thee wand'ring, set thee right,

Turned thy darkness into light.

"Can a woman's tender care,

Cease toward the child she bare?

Yes! she may forgetful be,

Yet will I remember thee.

"Mine is an unchanging love,

Higher than the heights above;

Deeper than the depths beneath,

Free and faithful, strong as death.

"Thou shalt see My glory soon,

When the work of grace is done;

Partner of my throne shall be;

Say, poor sinner, lov'st thou Me?"

Lord, it is my chief complaint,

That my love is weak and faint;

Yet I love Thee, and adore:

Oh, for grace to love Thee more!
