Words (1819) by Charlotte Elliott (1789-1871)


1.  There is a holy sacrifice

Which God in heaven will not despise,

Yea, which is precious in His eyes,

The contrite heart.

2.  That lofty One, before whose throne

The countless hosts of heaven bow down,

Another dwelling-place will own,

The contrite heart.

3.  The Holy One, the Son of God,

His pardoning love will shed abroad,

And consecrate as His abode

The contrite heart.

4.  The Holy Spirit from on high

Will listen to its faintest cry,

And cheer and bless and purify

The contrite heart.

5.  Saviour, I cast my hopes on Thee;

Such as Thou art, I fain would be;

In mercy, Lord, bestow on me

The contrite heart.
