Joseph Parry (1841-1903)

What but Thy right hand of power,
Power displayed in perfect love,
Can my confidence restore,
Can my torturing fear remove?
Lord, in this poor groveling soul
Now Thy Spirit’s power exert,
Now my unbelief control,
Purify and calm my heart.

Master, at Thy feet I wait
Thy reviving voice to hear:
Raise me to my first estate,
Show Thyself the Finisher,
Perfect what Thou hast begun,
And when all my griefs are past,
And when all my work is done,
Glorify my soul at last.
