Marele Dumnezeu

O, sursa a tot ce e bun,

Distruge in mine orice gand care se inalta,

Frange-mi mandria in bucatele si arunc-o in vant,

Nimiceste orice incercare a mea de a ma baza pe propria-mi neprihanire,

Fa-ma cu adevarat sarac in duh,

Coboara-ma pana la dezgust si oroare de mine insumi,

Deschide in mine o fantina de lacrimi de parere de rau,

Frange-ma iar apoi inlantuieste-ma,

Caci numai asa inima mea poate fi un loc pregatit pentru Dumnezeul meu,

AtuncipoateTatal sa locuiasca in mine,

Atunci poate binecuvantatul Isus veni cu atingerea lui tamaduitoare,

Atunci poate Duhul Sfant sa coboare si sa-mi dea har pentru sfintire;

O Sfanta Treime, trei Persoane si un Dumnezeu,

Locuieste in mine, un templu consacrat slavei tale.

Cand esti cu mine, raul nu poate salasui,

In partasia cu tine bucuria este deplina,

Ascunsa in zambet este o constiinta impacata,

Langa tine fricile nu ma ajung,

Nelinistea nu imi ocupa mintea.

Cu tine inima imi infloreste cu miros placut,

Fa-ma umil prin pocainta, ca sa poti locui in mine.

Nimic nu e mai mare ca puterea ta,

Nimic nu e greu sa poti face,

Nemarginita ti-e puterea, fara margini ti-e dragostea,

nelimitat ti-e harul, slavit ti-e numele mantuitor.

Sa cante ingerii pentru

Pacatosi care se pocaiesc,

Fii risipitori care se intorc,

Cei care au cazut si au fost ridicati,

Cei eliberati din legatura Satanei,

Cei orbi carora li s-au deschis ochii,

cei cu inimile frante care au fost legate,

Cei deznadajduiti care au fost consolati,

Cei care care se cred neprihaniti si au fost descoperiti,

Crestinii de forma eliberati din refugiul minciunii,

Ignorantii luminati,

Si sfintii intariti in credinta lor.

Cer lucruri mari de la un Dumnezeu mare.

O fountain of all good,

Destroy in me every lofty thought,

Break pride to pieces and scatter it to the winds,

Annihilate each clinging shred of self-righteousness,

Implant in me true lowliness of spirit,

Abase me to self-loathing and self-abhorrence,

Open in me a fount of penitential tears,

Break me, then bind me up;

Thus will my heart be a prepared dwelling for my God;

Then can the Father take up his abode in me,

Then can the blessed Jesus come with healing in his touch,

Then can the Holy Spirit descend in sanctifying grace;

O Holy Trinity, three Persons and one God,

inhabit me, a temple consecrated to thy glory.

When thou are present, evil cannot abide;

In thy fellowship is fullness of joy,

Beneath the smile is peace of conscience,

By thy side no fears disturb,

no apprehensions banish rest of mind.

With thee my heart shall bloom with fragrance;

make me meek through repentance, for thine indwelling.

Nothing exceeds thy power,

Nothing is too great for thee to do,

Nothing too good for thee to give.

Infinite is thy might, boundless thy love,

limitless thy grace, glorious thy saving name.

Let angels sing for

sinners repenting,

prodigals restored,

backsliders reclaimed,

Satan’s captives released,

blind eyes opened,

broken hearts bound up,

the despondents cheered,

the self-righteous stripped,

the formalist driven from a refuge of lies,

the ignorant enlightened,

and saints built up in their holy faith.

I ask great things of a great God.
