The hammer of God’s Word.
COME, O thou all-victorious Lord.
Thy power to us make known;
Strike with the hammer of thy word,
And break these hearts of stone.
2 O that we all might now begin
Our foolishness to mourn;
And turn at once from every sin,
And to the Saviour turn.
3 Give us ourselves and thee to know,
In this our gracious day;
Repentance unto life bestow,
And take our sins away.
4 Convince us ﬁrst of unbelief,
And freely then release;
Fill every soul with sacred grief,
And then with sacred peace.
Methodist Episcopal hymnal (1870 edition)
