1 Being of beings, God of love,
To Thee our hearts we raise;
Thy all-sustaining power we prove,
And gladly sing Thy praise.
2 Thine, wholly Thine, we long to be;
Our sacrifice receive!
Made, and preserved, and saved by Thee,
To Thee ourselves we give.
3 Come, Holy Ghost, the Savior’s love
Shed in our hearts abroad:
So shall we ever live and move,
And be with Christ in God.
