Lord, I confess my heart’s impure

1
Lord, I confess my heart’s impure,
So weak in loving Thee.
Thy light upon my heart obscure
Unfaithfulness reveals.
2
Although my mind with Thine agrees:
My being Thou dost own,
Some parts within would still not yield
To say, “I’m Thine alone.”
3
Remind me, Lord, of what love is,
How faithfulness should be.
The universe to all declares
Thou lovest faithfully.
4
The heavens, spread from sky to sky,
Bespeak Thy boundless love;
Its vast dimensions, broad and high,
We’ll never fully prove.
5
The vault of heav’n has billows soft;
They tell Thy care for me;
Such gentle, kind and tender love
Towards one so harsh towards Thee.
6
Surrounding range, majestic, sure,
Thy faithfulness displays.
Withstanding all, Thy love’s secure,
Immutable always.
7
For birds aloft and trees aground,
What thorough care I see!
Thy loving care for me abounds
E’en more unceasingly.
8
Love vast, yet thorough; strong, yet sweet,
I praise with joyful tears;
I’ll love Thee, Lord, with all my heart
Today and all my years.
9
Trustworthy, changeless, faithful, true—
I fain would learn from Thee,
That with my heart, though weak, I too
Can love Thee faithfully!
