A Feeble Song

17 Aug

Since I have known the Saviour’s name,
And what for me he bore,
No more I toil for empty fame,
I thirst for gold no more.

Plac’d by his hand in this retreat,
I make his love my theme;
And see that all the world calls great,
Is but a waking dream.

Grace bid me live, and taught my tongue
To aim at notes divine;
And grace accepts my feeble song;
The glory, Lord, be thine!

John Newton
