Gently, gently lay thy rod
On my sinful head, O God
Stay Thy wrath in mercy, stay
Lest I sink before its sway

Heal me, for my flesh is weak
Heal me, for thy grace I seek
This, my only plea I make
Heal me for Thy mercy’s sake

Who within the silent grave
Shall proclaim Thy power to save?
Lord, my sinking soul reprieve
Speak and I shall rise and live

Lo, He comes, He hears my plea
Lo, He comes, the shadows flee
Glory round me dawns once more
Rise, my spirit, and adore
