Thy Love Proclaim 533

Tune: E. W. Riley, 1927
Lyrics: John Newton, 1779 (Verses); Edward Perronet, 1779 (Chorus)
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
Weak is the effort of my heart,
And cold my warmest tho'ts;
But when I see Thee as Thou art,
I'll praise Thee as I ought.


Ye seed of Israel's chosen race,
Ye ransomed of the fall;
Hail Him who saves you by His Grace,
And crown him Lord of all.

'Till then I would Thy love proclaim,
With ev'ry fleeting breath;
And may the music of Thy name,
Refresh my soul in death.
