6-8s. Luke ix.23 1 MASTER, I own thy lawful claim, Thine, wholly thine, I long to be! Thou seest, at last, I willing am Where'er thou go'st to follow thee; Myself in all things to deny, Thine, wholly thine, to live and die.
2 Whate'er my sinful flesh require For thee I cheerfully forego, My covetous and vain desires, My hopes of happiness below, My senses' and my passions' food, And all my thirst for creature-good.
3 Pleasure, and wealth, and praise no more Shall lead my captive soul astray, My fond pursuits I all give o'er, Thee, only thee, resolved to obey; My own in all things to resign, And know no other will but thine.
4 All power is thine in earth and heaven, All fulness dwells in thee alone; Whate'er I have was freely given, Nothing but sin I call my own, Other propriety disclaim; Thou only art the great I AM.
5 Wherefore to thee I all resign; Being thou art, and love, and power; Thy only will be done, not mine! Thee, Lord, let heaven and earth adore! Flow back the rivers to the sea, And let our all be lost in thee!
