Jesu, Let Thy Pitying Eye
Call Back A Wandering Sheep
False To Thee, Like Peter, I
Would Fain, Like Peter, Weep:
Let Me Be By Grace Restored,
On Me Be All Long-Suffering Shown;
Turn, And Look Upon Me, Lord,
And Break My Heart Of Stone.

Saviour, Prince, Enthroned Above,
Repentance To Impart,
Give Me, Through Thy Dying Love,
The Humble, Contrite Heart:
Give What I Have Long Implored,
A Portion Of Thy Grief Unknown;
Turn, And Look Upon Me, Lord,
And Break My Heart Of Stone.

See Me, Saviour, From Above,
Nor Suffer Me To Die;
Life, And Happiness, And Love
Drop From Thy Gracious Eye:
Speak The Reconciling Word,
And Let Thy Mercy Melt Me Down;
Turn, And Look Upon Me, Lord,
And Break My Heart Of Stone.

Look, As When Thine Eye Pursued
Thy First Apostate Man,
Saw Him Weltering In His Blood,
And Bade Him Rise Again:
Speak My Paradise Restored,
Redeem Me By Thy Grace Alone;
Turn, And Look Upon Me, Lord,
And Break My Heart Of Stone.

Look, As When Thy Pity Saw
Thine Own In A Strange Land,
Forced To Obey The Tyrant’s Law,
And Feel His Heavy Hand:
Speak The Soul-Redeeming Word,
And Out Of Egypt Call Thy Son;
Turn, And Look Upon Me, Lord,
And Break My Heart Of Stone.

Look, As When Thy Grace Beheld
The Harlot In Distress,
Dried Her Tears, Her Pardon Sealed,
And Bade Her Go In Peace:
Vile, Like Her, And Self-Abhorred,
I At Thy Feet For Mercy Groan;
Turn, And Look Upon Me, Lord,
And Break My Heart Of Stone.

Look, As When Thy Languid Eye
Was Closed, That We Might Live;
“Father,” (At The Point To Die
My Saviour Gasped) “Forgive!”
Surely, With That Dying Word,
He Turns, And Looks, And Cries, “‘Tis Done!”
O My Bleeding, Loving Lord,
Thou Break’st My Heart Of Stone!
