Lyrics: Jesus, hear my cry

Jesus, hear my cry; You know my heart’s desire,
You who know and guide all things and see my way;
Set my heart aflame and free me from the pain, Lord.
Purge my heart, dear Jesus, in Your love, I pray.

Out of the depths of my heart, Lord, I pray!
Help me, Your Word to obey!
Out of the depths of my heart, Lord, I pray!
Help me to love your laws and way!

All of this world’s gold and all we can behold here,
Everything that’s temporal – make it all for me
Nothing worth attaining when compared to gaining
Heaven and its glory for eternity.

Out of the depths of my heart, Lord, I pray!
Help me, Your Word to obey!
Out of the depths of my heart, Lord, I pray!
Help me to love your laws and way!

Help me that I never go from You, Lord, ever.
May all things work for my best upon my ways.
Drive completely out all unbelief and doubt, Lord;
May my love for You be fervent all my days.

Thank You that You chasten; thanks for exhortation.
In my spirit I delight in Your sharp Sword.
Tear you’ve dried and given comfort straight from heaven;
Thank You for Your true encouragement, dear Lord.

Out of the depths of my heart, Lord, I pray!
Help me, Your Word to obey!
Out of the depths of my heart, Lord, I pray!
Help me to love your laws and way!
