I am the Lord, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your king.@Isaiah 43:15

Anne Steele, Poems on Subjects Chiefly Devotional 1760.

El Kader, composer unknown (🔊 pdf nwc).

My maker and my king,
To Thee my all I owe;
Thy sovereign bounty is the spring
Whence all my blessings flow;
Thy sovereign bounty is the spring
Whence all my blessings flow.

Thou ever good, and kind,
A thousand reasons move,
A thousand obligations bind,
My heart to grateful love.
A thousand obligations bind,
My heart to grateful love.

The creature of Thy hand,
On Thee alone I live;
My God, Thy benefits demand
More praise than I can give.
My God, Thy benefits demand
More praise than I can give.

Oh! what can I impart,
When all is Thine before?
Thy love demands a thankful heart;
The gift, alas, how poor!
Thy love demands a thankful heart;
The gift, alas, how poor!

Shall I withhold Thy due?
And shall my passions rove?
Lord, form this wretched heart anew,
And fill it with Thy love.
Lord, form this wretched heart anew,
And fill it with Thy love.

O let Thy grace inspire
My soul with strength divine;
Let all my powers to Thee aspire,
And all my days be Thine.
Let all my powers to Thee aspire,
And all my days be Thine.
