Into Thy hands I commend My Spirit. Luke 23:46

If you know when the music was written, would you ?
Into Thy gracious hands I fall,
And with the arms of faith embrace;
O King of glory, hear my call!
O raise me, heal me by Thy grace!
Arm me with Thy whole armor, Lord,
Support my weakness with Thy might;
Gird on my thigh Thy conquering sword,
And shield me in the threatening fight.
From faith to faith, from grace to grace,
So in Thy strength shall I go on,
Till Heaven and earth flee from Thy face,
And glory end what grace begun.
