Thought For

Charles Wesley's hymns are the focus of this week's reflections. Richard begins with 'My heart is full of Christ' — 506 in Singing the Faith.

My heart is full of Christ, and longs
this glorious matter to declare!
Of him I make my loftier songs,
I cannot from his praise forbear;
my ready tongue makes haste to sing
the glories of my heavenly King.

Fairer than all the earth-born race,
perfect in comeliness thou art;
replenished are thy lips with grace,
and full of love thy tender heart:
God ever blest! we bow the knee,
and own all fullness dwells in thee.

Gird on thy thigh the Spirit's sword,
and take to thee thy power divine;
stir up thy strength, almighty Lord,
all power and majesty are thine:
assert thy worship and renown;
O all-redeeming God, come down.

Come, and maintain thy righteous cause,
and let thy glorious toil succeed;
spread forth the victory of thy cross,
ride on, and prosper in thy deed;
through earth triumphantly ride on,
and reign in every heart alone.
