Just as I am, of that free love
The breadth, length, depth, and height to prove,
Here for a season, then above,
O Lamb of God, I comel. Amen.

My God, My Father, While I Stray

ARTHUR SEYMOUR SULLIVAN

1. My God, my Fa-ther, while I stray Far from my home in life's rough way,

For ev - er shared, for ev - er whole, A nev - er ebb-ing sea!

men.

Our outward lips confess the name

All other names above;
Love only knoweth whence it came,

And comprehendeth love.

We may not climb the heavenly steeps

To bring the Lord Christ down;
In vain we search the lowest deeps,

For Him no depths can drown.

But warm, sweet, tender, even yet

A present help is He;
And faith has still its Olivet,

And love its Galilee.

The healing of His seamless dress

Is by our beds of pain;
We touch Him in life's throng and press,

And we are whole again.

6.

Our Lord, and Master of us all!

Whate'er our name or sign,
We own Thy sway, we hear Thy call,

We test our lives by Thine. Amen.

1. Thou hid-den love of God, whose height, Whose depth unfathomed no man knows,

Each moment draw from earth away

My heart, that lowly waits Thy call;
Speak to my inmost soul, and say

“I am thy Love, thy God, thy All;"
To feel Thy power, to hear Thy voice,
To taste Thy love, be all my choice. Amen.
