Force Me to be Saved by Grace Don Fortner
(Tune: #169 Holy Spirit, Faithful Guide 77.77D)
O my God, what can I do? You alone can mercy show.
You can save my soul this hour. I have neither will nor pow’r.
Sov’reign over all You are, even of my sinful heart!
Make Your saving power known, Take away my heart of stone.
Come, subdue my lusts obscene; make this filthy sinner clean!
Make me willing to believe! Life eternal, Savior, give!
Force me, make me willing now; force my stubborn will to bow!
Grace almighty, Savior, show, make this wretch a creature new!
Nothing is too hard for You; work in me Your will and do.
Let my prayer not be denied, Grant repentance, break my pride.
Stop the madness of my will; speak, and bid my heart stand still.
Your Salvation let me see, Jesus crucified for me!
Bow the heavens, Lord come down; take me, Savior, for Your own.
Wretched unbelief o’erthrow; lay the highest mountain low.
Conquer me, oh, conquer me; get Yourself the victory!
Save the vilest of the race, force me to be saved by grace!
