Thy mighty love, O God, constraineth me

1
Thy mighty love, O God, constraineth me,
As some strong tide it presseth on its way,
Seeking a channel in my self-bound soul,
Yearning to sweep all barriers away.
2
Shall I not yield to that constraining power?
Shall I not say, O tide of love, flow in?
My God, Thy gentleness hath conquered me,
Life cannot be as it hath hither been.
3
Break through my nature, mighty, heavenly love,
Clear every avenue of thought and brain,
Flood my affections, purify my will,
Let nothing but Thine own pure life remain.
4
Thus wholly mastered and possessed by God,
Forth from my life, spontaneous and free,
Shall flow a stream of tenderness and grace,
Loving, because God loved, eternally.

That's the song I always sing while I'm at the church life but I am seeking the song of "Attracted by Your love Lord..."

"Thy mighty love, O God, contraineth me."

This is my prayer for the rest of my life; Lord, don't let me go. Constrain my whole being with Yourself. I love my master and I will not go out free. Give me the willingness to be trained and equipped, to hold a feast unto You to serve You. Lord my future is for You. Lord don't let me go!

Break through my nature mighty heavenly love

Clear every avenue of thought and brain

Flood my affections purify my will

I really missed the days mingling with all the believers. When I heard this song it's really remembered the days when I attend the young people's meeting, home meeting and other meeting I attended in philippines last 5 years ago. I really forgot the lyrics. So please post it here..btw, I was touched the message of our brother David Li..it is very refreshing! Hallelujah! Even though we're apart but we are one in His Body. Amen!

I love this song because it reaches deep into my soul and washes like a wave of forgiveness over me. God truly is wholly mastering me. The intermingling chords along with the lyrics tells me of the glories of God, the wonders of His name, and makes me yearn for a deeper understanding of Him. When listening or singing this song, I feel that all should take a moment of silence afterwards, or a Selah, to fully enjoy the prescence of God. Amen, Hallelujah!
