I ASK OF THEE
Words & Music by Jim Turner

Intro Piano

Verse 1

Each week I long for this day of rest
When to partake the sacrament I know I’m blessed
When I feel the Saviour’s cleansing power
As I ask forgiveness in this special hour


Chorus
Please bless me Lord I ask of thee
to feel of thy spirit and to be near to thee
Forgive me Lord the wrongs I’ve done
As before thee now I do come

Verse 2

As I partake of the broken bread
His suffering I remember as I bow my head
In Gethsemane and upon the cross
For sins and wrongs that I have done


Chorus
Please bless me Lord I ask of thee
to feel of thy spirit and to be near to thee
Forgive me Lord the wrongs I’ve done
As before thee now I do come

Verse 3

When of the water I do drink
Of the Atonement I do think
The gift He gave this gift of love
Is a special blessing from God above

Bridge Piano


Chorus
Please bless me Lord I ask of thee
to feel of thy spirit and to be near to thee
Forgive me Lord the wrongs I’ve done
As before thee now I do come
