Good Friday Hymns Lyrics
O Thou Who Camest from Above
~ by Charles Wesley
O Thou who camest from above,
The pure celestial fire to impart;
Kindle a flame of sacred love,
Upon the mean altar of my heart.
There let it for thy glory burn,
with inextinguishable blaze,
and trembling to its source return,
in humble prayer and fervent praise.
Jesus, confirm my heart’s desire
to work and speak and think for thee;
still let me guard the holy fire,
and still stir up thy gift in me.
Ready for all thy perfect will,
my acts of faith and love repeat,
till death thy endless mercies seal,
and make my sacrifice complete.
Depth of Mercy
~ Charles Wesley
I have long withstood His grace,
Long provoked Him to His face,
Would not hearken to His calls,
Grieved Him by a thousand falls.
I have spilt His precious blood,
Trampled on the Son of God,
Filled with pangs unspeakable,
I, who yet am not in hell!
And having sung these things, it makes
The mystery of grace all the more unfathomable!
