By Thy blood, O spot - less Lamb, Shed so will - ing - ly
2 Other lords have long held sway,
Now Thy name alone to bear,
Is my daily, hourly prayer;
Nothing else my joy can be. 3 Jesus, Master, I am Thine;
Keep me faithful, keep me near;
All my homeward way to cheer.
O be Thou my all in all.
Though so feebly and so ill, Strengthen hand and heart and nerve
All Thy bidding to fulfill; Open Thou mine eyes to see
All the work Thou hast for me.
Service such as I can bring;
Full allegiance to my King.
One who owes Thee more than all? As Thou wilt! I would not choose;
Only let me hear Thy call.
Frances R. Havergal, 1874
2 O what blessing to be near Thee, 4 Precious Jesus, I beseech Thee: And to hearken to Thy voice;
May Thy words take root in me; May I ever love and fear Thee,
May this gift from heaven enrich me, That Thy word may be my choice. So that I bear fruit for Thee; Oft were hardened sinners, Lord,
Take them never from my heart Struck with terror by Thy word;
Till I see Thee as Thou art, But to him for sin who grieveth
When in heavenly bliss and glory Comfort sweet and hope it giveth. I shall see Thee and adore Thee.
Now let the dew
of heaven descend, And righteous fruits a · bound.
2 Let not the foe of Christ and man
This holy seed remove;
To bring forth fruits of love.
The rising plant destroy;
But let it yield a hundred-fold
The fruits of peace and joy.
Thy quickening grace bestow,
J. Cawood, 1816
