lyrics

Long have I heard the joyful sound of Thy salvation, Lord
Yet still how weak my faith is found, how slow to learn Thy word
How cold and feeble is my love, how negligent my fear
How low my hope of joys above, how few affections have I there

Great God, Thy sovereign power impart to give Thy word success
Write Thy salvation on my heart and make me learn Thy grace
Show my forgetful feet the way that leads to joys on high
Where knowledge grows without decay, and love shall never, never die

How cold and feeble is my love, how negligent my fear
How low my hope of joys above, how few affections have I there
