Charles Wesley (1707–1788)


Savior, and can it be
That Thou shouldst dwell with me?
From Thy high and lofty throne,
Throne of ev­er­last­ing bliss,
Will Thy majesty stoop down
To so mean a house as this?

I am not worthy, Lord,
So foul, so self-abhorred,
Thee, my God, to entertain
In this poor polluted heart:
I am a frail sinful man!
All my nature cries, Depart!

Yet come, Thou heav’nly guest,
And purify my breast;
Come, Thou great and glo­ri­ous King,
While before Thy cross I bow;
With Thy­self sal­va­tion bring,
Cleanse the house by entering now.
