God is love.@1 John 4:8

Author unknown, in A Collection of Hymns for the Use of the People Called Methodists.

Carlisle Charles Lockhart, 1791 (🔊 pdf nwc).

God of almighty love,
By whose sufficient grace
I lift my heart to things above,
And humbly seek Thy face.

Through Jesus Christ the Just,
My faint desires receive;
And let me in Thy goodness trust,
And to Thy glory live.

Whate’er I say or do,
Thy glory be my aim;
My offerings all be offered through
The ever-blessèd name!

Jesu, my single eye
Be fixed on Thee alone:
Thy name be praised on earth, on high;
Thy will by all be done!

Spirit of faith, inspire
My consecrated heart;
Fill me with pure, celestial fire,
With all Thou hast, and art.

My feeble mind transform,
And, perfectly renewed,
Into a saint exalt a worm,
A worm exalt to God!
