This, The Rhythm of My Soul

This, the rhythm of my hour,
this the only certain power,
Jesus Christ forgives my sin,
I am trusting all in Him;
My heart He promises to rule,
saying like a herald true:
“Repent, believe,
and trust anew.”

This, the rhythm of my day,
this the only faithful way:
Holding sin I seek my Lord,
resting in His faithful Word;
My heart He promises to
mend, saying as a faithful
friend:
“Repent, believe,
and trust again.”

This, the rhythm of my years,
this amid the daily tears,
Falling once again to sin,
trusting once again in Him;
My heart He promises to save,
saying on the weary days:
“Repent, believe,
and trust always.”

This, the rhythm of my soul,
this the garden of my hope,
Dying I will die to sin,
heaven thus to enter in,
My heart He promises to cure,
saying softly at the door:
“Rest, my son,
repent no more.”
