Lovest Thou Me?

 (John, xxi.
16) Hark my soul! it is the Lord; 'Tis Thy Saviour, hear His word; Jesus speaks and speaks to thee, "Say poor sinner, lovst thou me? "I deliver'd thee when bound, And when bleeding, heal'd thy wound; Sought thee wandering, set thee right, Turn'd thy darkness into light.
"Can a woman's tender care Cease towards the child she bare? Yes, she may forgetful be, Yet will I remember thee.
"Mine is an unchanging love, Higher than the heights above, Deeper than the depths beneath, Free and faithful, strong as death.
"Thou shalt see my glory soon, When the work of grace is done; Partner of my throne shalt be; Say, poor sinner, lovst thou me?" Lord it is my chief complaint, That my love is weak and faint; Yet I love Thee and adore, -- Oh! for grace to love Thee more!
