I Asked the Lord That I Might Grow

Author: John Newton Hymnal: Trinity Psalter Hymnal #519 (2018) Meter: 8.8.8.8 Scripture: 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 Lyrics: 1 I asked the Lord that I might grow in faith and love and ev'ry grace; might more of his salvation know, and seek more earnestly his face. 2 ’Twas he who taught me thus to pray, and he, I trust, has answered pray'r, but it has been in such a way as almost drove me to despair. 3 I hoped that in some favored hour at once he’d answer my request, and by his love’s constraining pow’r subdue my sins and give me rest. 4 Instead of this he made me feel the hidden evils of my heart, and let the angry pow’rs of hell assault my soul in ev'ry part. 5 Yea more, with his own hand he seemed intent to aggravate my woe, crossed all the fair designs I schemed, humbled my heart, and laid me low. 6 "Lord, why is this?" I, trembling, cried; "Wilt thou pursue thy worm to death?" "Tis in this way," the Lord replied, "I answer prayer for grace and faith. 7 "These inward trials I employ from self and pride to set thee free, and break thy schemes of earthly joy that thou may’st find thy all in me."

Make Me a Captive, Lord

Author: George Matheson Hymnal: The Hymnal of The Evangelical United Brethren Church #266 (1957) Meter: 6.6.8.6 D Scripture: 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 Lyrics: 1 Make me a captive, Lord, And then I shall be free; Force me to render up my sword, And I shall conqueror be. I sink in life's alarms When by myself I stand; Imprison me within Thine arms, And strong shall be my hand. 2 My heart is weak and poor Till it a master find; It has no spring of action sure— It varies with the wind. It cannot freely move Till Thou hast wrought its chain; Enslave it with Thy matchless love, And deathless it shall reign. 3 My power is faint and low Till I have learned to serve; It wants the needed fire to glow, It wants the breeze to nerve; It cannot drive the world Until itself be driven; Its flag can only be unfurled When Thou shalt breathe from heaven. 4 My will is not my own Till Thou hast made it Thine; If it would reach a monarch's throne, It must its crown resign; It only stands unbent Amid the clashing strife, When on Thy bosom it has leant And found in Thee its life. Amen. Tune Title: LEOMINSTER
