386. O Thou best Gift of Heaven!

1 O Thou best Gift of Heaven!
Thou who Thyself hast given,--
For Thou hast died!
This hast Thou done for me:
What have I done for Thee,
Thou Crucified?

2 I long to serve Thee more:
Reveal an open door,
Saviour, to me;
Then, counting all but loss,
I'll glory in Thy Cross,
And follow Thee.

3 Do Thou but point the way,
And give me strength to obey;
Thy will be mine:
Then can I think it joy
To suffer or to die,
Since I am Thine.
