This is just a sampling of the lyrics, some of my favorite lines. The lyrics seem to range from every high and low: from obedience, to unbelief, to acknowledging unworthiness, to hearing the call and, finally, to answering with ringing confidence in Christ. Whew! Powerful words, Mr. Watts.
My soul obeys the almighty call,
And runs to this relief;
I would believe Thy promise, Lord,
Oh, help my unbelief!
A guilty, weak, and helpless worm,
On Thy kind arms I fall;
Be Thou my strength and righteousness,
My Jesus, and my all.
But there’s a voice of sovereign grace
Sounds from the sacred Word,
“Oh, ye despairing sinners, come,
And trust upon the Lord.
If you’re battling doubt or unbelief, cry this out to the Lord.
