Come, My Soul, Thy Suit Prepare

Anthem for SATB choir with optional piano accompaniment. Text by John Newton, setting by J. Bruce Ashton

music cover - Come My Soul

Come, my soul, thy suit prepare.
Jesus loves to answer prayer,
He Himself has bid thee pray,
Therefore will not say thee nay.

Thou art coming to a King,
Large petitions with thee bring,
For His grace and power are such,
None can ever ask too much.

With my burden I begin:
Lord, remove this load of sin;
Let Thy blood, for sinners spilt
Set my conscience free from guilt.

Lord, I come to Thee for rest,
Take possession of my breast;
There Thy blood-bought right maintain
And without a rival reign

As the image in the glass
Answers the beholder’s face;
Thus unto my heart appear,
Print Thine own resemblance there.

While I am a pilgrim here,
Let Thy love my spirit cheer,
As my Guide, my Guard, my Friend,
Lead to to my journey’s end.
– by John Newton

Teach me what I ought to do
Ev’ry hour my strength renew.
Let me live a life of faith
‘Til I see thee face to face.
