Come, My Soul, Thy Suit Prepare

VERSE 1
Come, my soul, thy suit prepare,
Jesus loves to answer prayer;
He Himself has bid thee pray,
Therefore will not say thee nay. 

VERSE 2
Thou art coming to a King,
Large petitions with thee bring;
For His grace and pow’r are such
None can ever ask too much. 

VERSE 3
With my burden I begin:
Lord, remove this load of sin;
Let Thy blood, for sinners spilt,
Set my conscience free from guilt. 

VERSE 4
Lord, I come to Thee for rest,
Take possession of my breast;
There Thy blood-bought right maintain
And without a rival reign. 

VERSE 5
As the image in the glass Answers the beholder’s face,
Thus unto my heart appear;
Print Thine own resemblance there. 

VERSE 6
While I am a pilgrim here,
Let Thy love my spirit cheer;
As my Guide, my Guard, my Friend,
Lead me to my journey’s end. 

VERSE 7
Show me what I have to do;
Every hour my strength renew.
Let me live a life of faith;
Let me die Thy people’s death.

Ekklesia Muskogee is a reformed baptist church that gathers for worship in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We confess the 1689 second London baptist confession of faith. We affirm the five solas of the Reformation as well as the doctrines of grace (otherwise known as the five points of Calvinism), and each of our pastors would not be ashamed to be called a Calvinist. We are a church led by elders, of which there is a plurality (also called pastors and overseers in the Scriptures). Our mission is to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches.
