Turn Now Your Wrath Away!

The way, the truth and the life!
The way, the truth and the life!

Turn now Your wrath, O Lord away,
We are Your heritage;
Forget our sin, our iniquity,
Your Son’s our only pledge.

Your Church O Lord’s a wilderness,
Laid waste by shame and guilt;
Zion cries out to You for peace,
For us Your blood was spilt.

Your holy, lovely house of prayer,
Where once Your glory dwelt;
Burned up, consumed with raging fire,
Our hearts Lord come and melt.

O hold not back, sweet Holy Ghost,
Afflict us Lord no more;
Come stir, come wake, make us Your boast,
Your righteousness out-pour.

(Tune: Kilmarnock; Martyrdom; Belmont; CM)
