Charles Wesley 1742

1. Lamb of God for sinners slain,
To thee I feebly pray,
Heal me of my grief and pain,
O take my sins away.
From this bondage, Lord, release,
No longer let me be oppressed:
Jesus, Master, seal my peace,
And take me to thy breast.

3. Wilt thou cast a sinner out
Who humbly comes to thee?
No, my God, I cannot doubt,
Thy mercy is for me:
Let me then obtain the grace,
And be of paradise possessed:
Jesus, Master, seal my peace,
And take me to thy breast.

5. Worldly good I do not want,
Be that to others given,
Only for thy love I pant,
My all in earth and heaven;
This the crown I fain would seize,
The good wherewith I would be blest:
Jesus, Master, seal my peace,
And take me to thy breast.

6. This delight I fain would prove,
And then resign my breath,
Join the happy few, whose love
Was mightier than death.
Let it not my Lord displease,
That I would die to be thy guest;
Jesus, Master, seal my peace,
And take me to thy breast.

 

James Carrell 1821

1. Lamb of God for sinners slain,
To thee I humbly pray,
Heal me of my grief and pain,
O take my sins away.
From this bondage, Lord, release,
No longer let me be oppressed:
Jesus, Master, seal my peace,
And take me to thy rest.

2. Wilt thou cast a sinner out
Who humbly comes to thee?
No, my God, I cannot doubt,
Thy mercy is for me:
Let me then obtain the grace,
And be of paradise possessed:
Jesus, Master, seal my peace,
And take me to thy breast.

3. Worldly good I do not want,
Be that to others given,
Only for thy love I pant,
My all in earth or heaven;
This the crown I fain would seize,
The good wherewith I would be blest:
Jesus, Master, seal my peace,
And take me to thy breast.

4. This delight I fain would prove,
And then resign my breath,
Join the happy few, whose love
Was mightier than death.
Let it not my Lord displease,
That I would die to be thy guest;
Jesus, Master, seal my peace,
And take me to thy breast.
