1 Saviour, on me the grace bestow,
That with thy children I may know
My sins on earth forgiven;
Give me to prove the kingdom mine,
And taste, in holiness divine,
The happiness of heaven!

2 Me with that restless thirst inspire,
That sacred, infinite desire,
And feast my hungry heart:
Less than thyself can not suffice;
My soul for all thy fullness cries,
For all thou hast and art.

3 Mercy who show shall mercy find:
Thy pitiful and tender mind
Be, Lord, on me bestowed;
So shall I still the blessing gain,
And to eternal life retain
The mercy of my God.

4 Jesus, the crowning grace impart:
Bless me with purity of heart;
That now beholding thee,
I soon may view thy open face,
On all thy glorious beauties gaze,
And God forever see.
