Enlargement Expectancy

Tune: Franconia

('Blest are the pure in heart')


Enlarge my loving heart

Possess it every part

Lord, for you have made me to love

By your fair Spirit, dove


Spirit, who all does search

Knows all, needs no research

So this heart here, me empower

To serve you every hour


Things of world, earthly life

help me tend without strife

To put you first, then all shall be

Worked out satisfiedly


If 'neath some load of sin

Forgive, cleanse me within

Or oppressed with doubt, worry, fear

Set me free, here appear


Thus salt and light for you

Sharing with others too

Gospel, the good news, salvation

Avails to every one


In Christ's image I grow

And others too may know

Him as their Saviour, lord, and king

And to Him worship bring


Where earth-bound, soul, arise

Ever on to the prize

Christ formed in you, hope of glory

On through eternity
