536. Be Ye Holy

1 What so great, so grand, and lovely,
Can our aspirations claim,
As the glory in this scripture,
“Be ye holy” through His name?

Refrain:
I am Thine evermore,
Jesus, Savior, I adore.

2 ’Tis a perfect consecration,
That will save us from all sin;
Hear the sounding proclamation,
Be ye, therefore, pure within. [Refrain]

3 Through the great omnific Savior,
All-sufficient grace, we know,
Will sustain us all forever,
Keeping whiter than the snow. [Refrain]

4 In that holy land of blessing,
We’re exalted by our King,
Ever loving and confessing
Him, whose grateful praise we bring. [Refrain]
