405. Channels Only

1 How I praise Thee, precious Savior,
That Thy love laid hold of me;
Thou hast saved and cleansed and filled me
That I might Thy channel be.

Channels only, blessèd Master,
But with all Thy wondrous pow'r
Flowing through us, Thou canst use us
Every day and every hour.

2 Emptied that Thou shouldest fill me,
A clean vessel in Thy hand,
With no pow'r but as Thou givest
Graciously with each command. (Refrain)

3 Witnessing Thy pow'r to save me,
Setting free from self and sin;
Thou who bought me to possess me,
In Thy fullness, Lord, come in. (Refrain)

4 Jesus, fill now with Thy Spirit
Hearts that full surrender know;
That the streams of living water
From our inner selves may flow. (Refrain)
