FULL OF CHRIST

Charles wrote this Hymn based on Psalm 45 it is found in the Col­lect­ion of Psalms and Hymns, 1743. He is reputed to have written over 6000 hymns some of which are still sung regularly today. This is one hymn that is full of Christ, it speaks of Him, rightly, as God, as King, as Lord : full of Glory, Power, Strength, and Majesty and having the right of worship and renown,
He has a glorious toil, in a righteous cause, and a mighty victory in the Cross and we long that He comes and reigns in every heart.
 

My Heart is full of Christ, and longs,
It’s glorious matter to declare!
Of Him I make my loftier songs,
I cannot from His praise forbear;
My ready tongue makes haste to sing
The glories of my heavenly King.

Fairer than all the earth-born race,
Perfect in comeliness Thou art;
Replenished are Thy lips with Grace,
And full of love Thy tender heart:
God ever blest! We bow the knee,
And own all fullness come from Thee.

Gird on Thy thigh the Spirit’s sword,
And take to Thee Thy power divine;
Stir up Thy strength almighty Lord,
All power and majesty are Thine:
Assert Thy worship and renown;
O all-redeeming God come down.

Come and maintain Thy righteous cause,
And let Thy glorious toil succeed;
O spread the victory of Thy cross,
Ride on, and prosper in Thy deed!
Through earth triumphantly ride on,
And reign in every heart alone.
