1 God of all redeeming grace,
By thy pard'ning love compell'd
Up to thee our souls we raise,
Up to thee our bodies yield:
Thou our sacrifice receive,
Acceptable through thy Son,
While to thee alone we live,
While we die to thee alone.
2 Meet it is, and just and right,
That we should be wholly thine;
In thy only will delight,
In thy blessed service join:
O that ev'ry work and word
Might proclaim how good thou art:
Holiness unto the Lord
Still be wrote upon our heart!

God of all-redeeming grace. C. Wesley. [Holy Communion.] No. 139 of his Hymns on the Lord's Supper, 1745, in 4 stanzas of 4 lines. In 1760 it was given in Madan's Psalms & Hymns, No. 162, and later in other collections of the Church of England. It was also in the Wesleyan Hymn Book, 3780, No. 415, and later editions, and in a few collections in Great Britain and America. In the original stanza iii. it reads, "Just it is, and good, and right"; but in the Wesleyan Hymn Book, J. Wesley changed it to "Meet it is, and just and right," thereby bringing it into harmony with the Book of Common Prayer, "It is very meet, right, and our bounden duty," &c.
