"Father, into Thy hands I commend my Spirit." Luke 23:46

Hymns Supplied Through the Gracious Generosity
of the Cyber Hymnal Website

Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153) Words: Attributed to Bernard of Clairvaux (1091-1153); translated from Latin to English by Charles Porterfield Krauth (1823-1883)

Music: "Leominster," George Walter Martin, 1862


Charles Porterfield Krauth (1823-1883)

Wide open are Thy hands,
Paying with more than gold
The awful debt of guilty men,
Forever and of old.
Ah, let me grasp those hands,
That we may never part,
And let the power of their blood
Sustain my fainting heart.

Wide open are Thine arms,
A fallen world to embrace;
To take to love and endless rest
Our whole forsaken race.
Lord, I am sad and poor,
But boundless is Thy grace;
Give me the soul transforming joy
For which I seek Thy face.

Draw all my mind and heart
Up to Thy throne on high,
And let Thy sacred cross exalt
My spirit to the sky.
To these, Thy mighty hands,
My spirit I resign;
Living, I live alone to Thee,
Dying, alone am Thine.
