39. Come, my Soul, thy Suit Prepare

1 Come, my soul, thy suit prepare,
Jesus loves to answer pray'r;
He Himself has bid thee pray,
Therefore will not say thee nay.

2 With my burden I begin;
Lord, remove this load of sin;
Let Thy blood, for sinners spilt,
Set my conscience free from guilt.

3 Lord, I come to Thee for rest,
Take possession of my breast,
There Thy blood-bought right maintain
And without a rival reign.

4 While I am a pilgrim here,
Let Thy love my spirit cheer;
As my guide, my guard, my friend,
Lead me to my journey's end.

5 Show me what I have to do,
Ev'ry hour my strength renew;
Let me live a life of faith,
Let me die Thy people's death.
