Hymn for Sunday – Turn a New Leaf for Me   2 comments

december-20

Turn a new leaf for me, Father, I pray;
This one is blotted, O take it away;
Cleanse all its stains in the blood of the cross;
Let me in Jesus find gain for my loss.

Refrain

Turn a new leaf for me, Father, I pray;
Turn a new leaf in my life-book today;
Pardon me graciously,
Deal with me wondrously,
Turn a new leaf in my life-book today.

Turn a new leaf for me, spotless and white;
Hold Thou my hand as Thy bidding I write;
Teach me with patience that never shall tire,
Let Thine own Spirit the record inspire.

Refrain

Turn a new leaf for me; then, line by line,
Help me to copy the pattern divine;
O that Thine eye some resemblance might see
To the sweet lessons inscribed there for me.

Refrain

Turn a new leaf for me, Father above;
Place there new proofs of Thy mercy and love;
Then shall this page of my life-book be bright,
Judged by the test of eternity’s light.

Refrain
