443. Jesus I Would Faithful Be

1 Jesus, I would faithful be,
Give me the pow’r,
Give me the pow’r,
Jesus, I would walk with Thee,
Each passing hour,
Each passing hour.

In Thy footsteps place my feet,
AS Thou dost will,
As Thou dost will;
And if thorns my pathway meet,
Bid me be still, be still.

2 Jesus, I would talk with Thee,
While in the way,
While in the way;
Joyful, while Thy smile I see,
Each happy day,
Each happy day. [Chorus]

3 Give me, Lord, Thy burning heart,
To dwell within,
To dwell within;
Thine own nature, Lord, impart,
To free from sin,
To free from sin. [Chorus]

4 Thus my daily walk shall be
In Thy sweet will,
In Thy sweet will;
Jesus only, only Thee,
My heart can fill,
My heart can fill. [Chorus]
