Old things passed away

A hymn from the 1865 edition of Hymns of the Spirit (see all posts hymns) as we prepare for the season of resolutions...written by my favorite, annonymous.

"Renewed in His Image"

I praise and bless Thee, O my God,
My Father kind and true!
For all the old things passed away,
For all Thou hast made new.

And yet how much must be destroyed,
How much renewed must be,
Ere I can fully stand complete
In likeness, Lord to Thee!

O God! work out Thy heavenly plan;
Within my soul unfold
The stature of the perfect man.
And Thine own image mould."
