John Wesley (1703–1791)


Into Thy gra­cious hands I fall,
And with the arms of faith em­brace;
O King of glo­ry, hear my call!
O raise me, heal me by Thy grace!

Arm me with Thy whole ar­mor, Lord,
Support my weak­ness with Thy might;
Gird on my thigh Thy con­quer­ing sword,
And shield me in the threat­en­ing fight.

From faith to faith, from grace to grace,
So in Thy strength shall I go on,
Till Hea­ven and earth flee from Thy face,
And glo­ry end what grace be­gun.
