Amazing Grace

“O THOU GIVING GOD,

“My heart is drawn out in thankfulness to thee,
for thy amazing grace and condescension to me
in influences and assistances of thy Spirit,
for special help in prayer,
for the sweetness of Christian service,
for the thoughts of arriving in heaven,
for always sending me needful supplies,
for raising me to new life when I am like one dead.

“I want not the favor of man to lean upon for thy favor is infinitely better.

“Thou art eternal wisdom in dispensations towards me;
and it matters not when, nor where, nor how I serve thee,
nor what trials I am exercised with,
if I might but be prepared for thy work and will.

“No poor creature stands in need of divine grace more than I do,

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

“Every time I exercise any grace renewedly
I am renewedly indebted to thee,
the God of all grace, for special assistance.

“I cannot boast when I think how dependent
I am upon thee for the being and every act of grace;

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

“Give me special grace to fit me for special services,
and keep me calm and resigned at all times,
humble, solemn, mortified,
and conformed to thy will.”
