Desiring Love’s Sanctifying Effects. 1 John 5. 3

W. Gadsby   10s

1
Lord, let me feel the unction of thy love,
To cheer my heart, and set my mind above;
Give me a precious glimpse of thy sweet face,
And make me gladly all thy will embrace.

2
Draw me from all forbidden toil and care,
From lust, and pride, and every hurtful snare;
Make Satan and his hellish powers to flee,
And let me have true intercourse with thee.

3
Subdue that monstrous host that dwells within,
That cursèd train of unbelief and sin;
Let faith be active in the Lamb once slain,
And all my soul adore, and love his name.
