6*. Gracious Lord! My Heart Is Fixèd

8,7.
by T. Kelly
1
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
2
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
3
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.
