In Preparation for the Lord’s Day: No, Not Despairingly

No, Not Despairingly


No, not despairingly
come I to Thee;
no, not distrustingly
bend I the knee;
sin hath gone over me,
yet is this still my plea,
Jesus hath died.

Ah! Mine iniquity
crimson has been,
infinite, infinite
sin upon sin;
sin of not loving Thee,
sin of not trusting Thee,
infinite sin.

Lord, I confess to Thee
sadly my sin;
all I am, tell to Thee,
all I have been;
purge Thou my sin away,
wash Thou my soul this day;
Lord, make me clean.

Faithful and just art Thou,
forgiving all;
loving and kind art Thou
when poor ones call;
Lord, let the cleansing blood,
blood of the Lamb of God,
pass o’er my soul.

Then all is peace and light
this soul within;
thus shall I walk with Thee,
the loved Unseen
leaning on Thee, my God,
guided along the road,
nothing between.

Hymns to the Living God (Religious Affections Ministries, 2017).

I could not find a recording of this tune. For those who can read music, it looks like this:


The current hymnal for this series is Hymns to the Living God, recently published by Religious Affections Ministries. This is such a good hymnal that I’m pretty sure I could happily post every hymn it contains, but I’ll be limiting selections to hymns I have never posted here before, especially those unfamiliar to me (of which there are many). For more information and to purchase this hymnal, visit Religious Affections Ministries.
