Poem by Augustus Montague Toplady


* * *


What though I cannot break my chain
Or eer throw off my load,
The things impossible to men
Are possible to God.

Who, who shall in Thy presence stand,
Or match omnipotence;
Unfold the grasp of Thy right hand
And pluck the sinner thence?

Faith to be healed I fain would have,
O might it now be given;
Thou canst, thou canst the sinner save,
And make me meet for Heavn.

Bound down with twice ten thousand ties,
Yet let me hear Thy call;
My soul in confidence shall rise,
Shall rise and break through all.

Thou canst oercome this heart of mine,
Thou wilt victorious prove;
For everlasting strength is Thine,
And everlasting love.
