During his Courtship

By Charles Wesley

      Christ, my Life, my Only Treasure,
      Thou alone
      Mould thine own,
      After thy Good pleasure.

      Thou, who paidst my Price, direct me!
      Thine I am,
      Holy Lamb,
      Save, and always save me.

      Order Thou my whole Condition,
      Chuse my State,
      Fix my Fate
      By thy wise Decision.

      From all Earthly Expectation
      Set me free,
      Seize for Thee
      All my Strength of Passion.

      Into absolute Subjection
      Be it brought,
      Every Thought,
      Every fond Affection.

      That which most my Soul requires
      For thy sake
      Hold it back
      Purge my Best Desires.

      Keep from me thy loveliest Creature,
      Till I prove
      JESUS' Love
      Infinitely sweeter;

      Till with purest Passion panting
      Cries my Heart
      'Where Thou art
      Nothing more is wanting.'

      Blest with thine Abiding Spirit,
      Fully blest
      Now I rest,
      All in Thee inherit.

      Heaven is now with Jesus given;
      Christ in me,
      Thou shalt be
      Mine Eternal Heaven.
