GIVE me the faith which can remove

By A Collection of Hymns

      1 GIVE me the faith which can remove
      And sink the mountain to a plain;
      Give me the child-like praying love,
      Which longs to build thy house again;
      Thy love let it my heart o'erpower,
      And all my simple soul devour.

      2 I want an even strong desire,
      I want a calmly-fervent zeal,
      To save poor souls out of the fire,
      To snatch them from the verge of hell,
      And turn them to a pardoning God,
      And quench the brands in Jesu's blood.

      3 I would the precious time redeem,
      And longer live for this alone,
      To spend, and to be spent, for them
      Who have not yet my Saviour known;
      Fully on these my mission prove,
      And only breathe, to breathe thy love.

      4 My talents, gifts, and graces, Lord,
      Into thy blessed hands receive;
      And let me live to preach thy word,
      And let me to thy glory live;
      My every sacred moment spend
      In publishing the sinner's friend.

      5 Enlarge, inflame, and fill my heart
      With boundless charity divine!
      So shall I all my strength exert,
      And love them with a zeal like thine;
      And lead them to thy open side,
      The sheep for whom their Shepherd died.
