which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.

Words: Mrs. Albert Head: 1830-1905
Music: John Wainwright: 1723-1768
STIR ME, OH, STIR ME, LORD!
Stir me, Oh, stir me, LORD, I care not how,
But stir my heart in passion for the world!
Stir me to give, to go- but most to pray;
Stir, till the blood red banner be unfurled-
O’er lands that still in heathen darkness lie,
O’er deserts where no cross is lifted high.
Stir me, Oh, stir me, LORD, till all my heart-
Is filled with strong compassion for these-souls;
Till Thy compelling Word drives me to pray;
Till Thy constraining love reach to the poles-
Far north and south, in burning, deep desire,
Till east and west are caught in love’s great fire.
Stir me, Oh, stir me, LORD, Thy heart was stirred-
By love’s intensest fire, till Thou didst give-
Thine only Son, Thy best belovèd One,
E’en to the dreadful cross, that I might live.
Stir me to give myself so back to Thee,
That Thou canst give Thyself again through me.
Stir me, Oh, stir me, LORD, for I can see-
Thy glorious triumph-day begin to break!
The dawn already gilds the eastern sky:
Oh, Church of Christ, arise! awake! awake!
Oh, stir us, LORD, as heralds of that day,
For night is past - our King is on His way!
A blessèd Seventh Day Sabbath
to all believers.
In the Son’s Name - For the Father’s glory.
