Meditation for Sunday, June 28.

“Ask what I shall give thee.” 1 Kings 3:5.

 

  1. 1.Come, my soul, thy suit prepare,

Jesus loves to answer pray’r.

He Himself has bid thee pray,

rise and ask without delay.

 

  1. 2.Thou art coming to a King,

large petitions with thee bring,

for his grace and pow’r are such,

none can ever ask too much.

 

  1. 3.With my burden I begin,

Lord, remove this load of sin!

Let Thy blood, for sinners spilt,

set my conscience free from guilt.

 

  1. 4.Lord! I come to Thee for rest,

take possession of my breast;

there Thy blood-bought right maintain,

and without a rival reign.

 

  1. 5.As the image in the glass,

answers the beholders face,

thus to my heart appear;

print Thine own resemblance there.

 

  1. While I am a pilgrim here,

let Thy love my spirit cheer;

as my Guide, my Guard, my Friend,

lead me to my journey’s end.

 

  1. Show me what I have to do;

ev’ry hour my strength renew;

let me live a life of faith;

let me die Thy people’s death.

John Newton
