Take away our bent to sinning; Alpha and Omega be; End of faith, as its Beginning, Set our hearts at liberty.
Made like him, like him we rise, Alleluia! Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia!
Glory to the newborn King!
Born to set thy people free.
Jesus, lover of my soul, let me to Thy bosom fly
This hymn was written by the great hymnist Charles Wesley, who wrote over 8,000 hymns. His brother John Wesley is known as the father of Methodism.
