Christ My Song - 1326

The Lord, "the only wise", is he
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

The Lord, "the only wise", is he.

"The only wise God, our Saviour." (Jude 25)

1. The Lord, "the only wise", is he,
  who died on yonder cross for me,
for me, a wretch, and thousands more,
  whose place he took, whose guilt he bore. PDF - Midi

2. I wonder when I think on this;
  I wonder much that love like his
should fail to move a heart of stone,
  a heart as stubborn as my own.

3. With love like this before my eyes,
  that fills an angel with surprise,
my heart, with grief and shame I own,
  is still too like a heart of stone.

4. O Lord, thy Spirit's pow'r alone
  can take away this "heart of stone";
and in its room another place,
"a heart of flesh", that owns thy grace.

5. Then let thy promised grace be giv'n,
  the earnest of a future heav'n;
where all who love thee, there shall be
  for ever happy, Lord, with thee.

6. To thee I look, to thee alone;
  to thee, to whom all hearts are known;
to walk with thee my soul aspires,
  O satisfy my soul's desires.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 172.
