I praise Thee for the happy moment
when I first saw Christ.
Wrath appeased, death destroyed, sin forgiven,
my soul saved...
I want no other Rock to build upon
than that I have,
Desire no other hope
than that of gospel truth,
Need no other look
than that which gazes on the cross...
In Him I have all that I can hold,
enlarge me to take in more...
If I am in extremity,
let me feel that He can deliver me;
If driven to the verge of hope
and to the pit of despair,
grant me grace to fall into His arms.
O God, hear me.
Do for me more
than I ask,
