A Prayerful Heart 556

Tune: Bascom Franklin Faust, 1927
Lyrics: Charles Wesley, 1742
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
O, for a heart to praise my God,
A heart from sin set free;
A heart that always feels Thy blood,
So freely shed for me.

A heart resigned, submissive, meek,
My great Redeemer's throne;
Where only Christ is heard to speak,
Where Jesus reigns alone.

O, for a lowly, contrite heart,
Believing, true and clean;
Which neither life nor death can part,
From Him that dwells within.
