196. O My Savior, I Adore Thee

1 O my Savior, I adore Thee,
Who hast sealed me with Thy seal;
Hear me as I come before Thee,
And Thy tender grace reveal;
Show the way of love to me
Lest my feet should stray from Thee.

2 I was blind, no token seeing
Of Thy boundless love for me;
I was deaf, a wretched being,
Lame, enslaved, and lost to Thee;
Now I feel Thy love's caress,
Robed in Thine own righteousness.

3 But Thy love, so strong and tender,
Also kindles love in me,
That I willingly may render
Heart and soul and all to Thee;
Help me, then, Thy will to do
As Thy servant good and true.

4 This is what Thou, Lord, demandest
Of Thy servant evermore;
Wanton sinners Thou withstandest
Who will not Thy grace implore;
Only what Thy grace has wrought
In Thy sight will count for aught.

5 O Lord Jesus, I will rest me
In Thy love thro'out life's day;
Of all selfishness divest me,
Fill my heart with love's bright ray;
Let Thy Spirit purge my heart
And each day new life impart.
