415. Search Me, O God

1 Search me, O God, and know my heart today;
Try me, O Savior, know my thoughts, I pray:
See if there be some wicked way in me:
Cleanse me from ev'ry sin and set me free.

2 I praise Thee, Lord, for cleansing me from sin:
Fulfill Thy Word, and make me pure within;
Fill me with fire, where once I burned with shame:
Grant my desire to magnify Thy name.

3 Lord, take my life, and make it wholly Thine;
Fill my poor heart with Thy great love divine;
Take all my will, my passion, self and pride;
I now surrender: Lord, in me abide.

4 O Holy Ghost, revival comes from Thee:
Send a revival start the work in me;
Thy Word declares Thou wilt supply our need;
For blessing now, O Lord, I humbly plead.
