576. Dear Lord and Master mine

1 Dear Lord and Master mine,
Thy happy servant see;
My Conqueror, with what joy divine
Thy captive clings to thee!

2 I love thy yoke to wear,
To feel thy gracious bands;
Sweetly restrained by thy care
And happy in thy hands.

3 No bar would I remove,
No bond would I unbind;
Within the limits of thy love
Full liberty I find.

4 I would not walk alone,
But still with thee, my God;
At ev'ry step my blindness own,
And ask of thee the road.

5 Dear Lord and Master mine,
Still keep thy servant true;
My Guardian and my Guide divine,
Bring, bring thy pilgrim through.

6 My Conqueror and my King,
Still keep me in thy train;
And with thee thy glad captive bring
When thou return'st to reign.
