O come, our all-victorious Lord

O come, our all-victorious Lord,
your power to us make known;
strike with the hammer of your word
and break these hearts of stone.

2. If only we might all begin
our foolishness to mourn,
to turn at once from every sin
and to our Saviour turn!

3. Ourselves and God we need to know
in this your gracious day;
repentance, faith and life bestow,
and take our sins away.

4. Convict us first of unbelief,
and freely then release;
fill every soul with sacred grief
and then with sacred peace.

5. Lord, make us poor; help us believe,
and so make rich the poor;
the knowledge of our sickness give,
and knowledge of its cure.

6. The healthy sense of guilt impart
and then remove the load;
disturb, and then set free the heart
by your atoning blood.

7. Our desperate state through sin declare,
then speak our sins forgiven;
for perfect holiness prepare
and take us into heaven.
