1 O that I could repent!
O that I could believe
Thou, by thy voice the marble rent,
The rock in sunder cleave!
Thou, by thy two-edg'd sword,
My soul and spirit part;
Strike with the hammer of thy word,
And break my stubborn heart.

2 Saviour and Prince of peace,
The double grace bestow;
Unloose the bands of wickedness,
And let the captive go:
Grant me my sins to feel,
And then the load remove:--
Wound, and pour in, my wounds to heal,
The balm of pard'ning love.

3 For thine own mercy's sake,
The hindrance now remove,
And into thy protection take
The pris'ner of thy love:
In every trying hour,
Stand by my feeble soul,
And screen me from my nature's power,
Till thou hast made me whole.

4 This is thy will, I know,
That I should holy be;
Should let my sins this moment go,
This moment turn to thee:
O might I now embrace
Thine all-sufficient power!
And never more to sin give place,
And never grieve thee more.

In 1726 Charles Wesley was elected to a Westminster studentship at Christ Church, Oxford, where he took his degree in 1729, and became a college tutor.
