Frequent the day of God returns

Full Text

1 Frequent the day of God returns
To shed its quickening beams;
And yet how slow devotion burns!
How languid are its flames!

2 Accept my faint attempts to love,
My frailties, Lord forgive;
I would be like thy saints above,
And praise thee while I live.

3 Assist me while i wander here,
Amidst a world of cares:
Incline my heart to pray with love,
And then accept my prayers.

4 Release my soul from every chain,
No more hell's captive led;
And pardon a repenting child,
For whom the Savior bled.

5 Spare me, my God, O spare the soul
That gives itself to thee;
Take all that I possess below,
And give thy face to see.

6 Thy spirit, O my Father, give,
To be my guide and friend,
To light my ways to ceaseless joys,
To Sabbaths without end.

The Hartford Selection of Hymns from the most approved authors, 1799

Author: Simon Browne

Simon Browne was born at Shepton Mallet, Somersetshire, about 1680. He began to preach as an "Independent" before he was twenty years of age, and was soon after settled at Portsmouth. In 1716, he became pastor in London. In 1723, he met with some misfortunes, which preyed upon his mind, and produced that singular case of monomania, recorded in the text-books of Mental Philosophy; he thought that God had "annihilated in him the thinking substance, and utterly divested him of consciousness." "Notwithstanding," says Toplady, "instead of having no soul, he wrote, reasoned, and prayed as if he had two." He died in 1732. His publications number twenty-three, of which some are still in repute. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins,… Go to person page >
