6*. Gracious Lord! My Heart Is Fixèd

by T. Kelly
Gracious Lord! my heart is fixèd;
Sing I will, and sing of Thee,
Since the cup that justice mixèd
Thou hast drunk, and drunk for me:
Great Deliverer!
Thou hast set the prisoner free.
1 Peter 2:3; Psalm 57:7; Psalm 108:1; Psalm 104:33; Matthew 26:39; Romans 11:26; Daniel 6:16
Many were the chains that bound me,
But the Lord has loosed them all:
Arms of mercy now surround me,
Favors these, nor few, nor small:
Saviour, keep me!
Keep Thy servant, lest he fall.
Psalm 73:6; Romans 7:23-25; Psalm 57:10; Psalm 69:13; 1 Peter 1:5; Jude 1:24
Fair the scene that lies before me,
Life eternal Jesus gives;
While He waves His banner o'er me,
Peace and joy my soul receives:
Sure His promise!
I shall live because He lives.
John 10:28; Song of Solomon 2:4; John 14:27; John 15:11; 2 Corinthians 1:20; John 14:19
When the world would bid me leave Thee,
Telling me of shame and loss,
Saviour, guard me, lest I grieve Thee,
Lest I cease to love Thy cross:
This is treasure;
All the rest I count but dross.
Philippians 3:7-8; Acts 5:41; Mark 3:5; Galatians 6:14; Philippians 3:7-8
“If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.” (1 Peter 2:3)
