590. Jesus, Master, Whose I Am

1 Jesus, Master, whose I am,
purchased thine alone to be
by thy blood, O spotless Lamb,
shed so willingly for me,
let my heart be all thine own,
let me live to thee alone.

2 Jesus, Master, I am thine:
keep me faithful, keep me near;
let thy presence in me shine
all my homeward way to cheer.
Jesus, at thy feet I fall,
O be thou my all in all.

3 Jesus, Master, whom I serve,
though so feebly and so ill,
strengthen hand and heart and nerve
all thy bidding to fulfil.
Open thou mine eyes to see
all the work thou hast for me.

4 Lord, thou needest not, I know,
service such as I can bring;
yet I long to prove and show
full allegiance to my King.
Thou an honor art to me:
let me be a praise to thee.
