1 Dear Lord, increase my faith, I pray,
While on this earth I roam;
Banish my ev’ry doubt away,
And guide me safely home.
Guide me home, guide me home,
Guide me safely home;
Banish my ev’ry doubt away,
And guide me safely home.

2 Give me the faith to trust Thy pow’r,
E’en where I cannot see;
The faith to yield this very hour,
My life, my all, to Thee.
All to Thee, all to Thee,
Life and all the Thee;
Help me to yield, this very hour,
My life and all to Thee.

3 To yield the whole and not a part,
Is my most earnest pray’r;
Come, Thou, and cleanse my froward heart,
And reign forever there.
Cleanse my heart, cleanse my heart,
Feign forever there;
Come, Thou, and cleanse my froward heart,
And reign forever there.

4 Should anything e’er seem to stand,
Between Thy heart and mine,
Spare not the chast’ning of Thy hand,
Till I am wholly Thine.
Wholly Thine, wholly Thine,
Till I’m wholly Thine;
Spare not the chast’ning of Thy hand,
Till I am wholly Thine.

5 Then, when on earth my work is past,
And I have reach’d the goal,
Oh, bear me to my home at last,
An humble, grateful soul.
Bear me home, bear me home,
To my heav’nly home;
Oh bear me to my home at last,
An humble, grateful soul.

6 A palm of victory I’ll bear,
Of vict’ry over sin;
And I shall tell the angels there,
How Jesus took me in.
Tell them there, tell them there,
Jesus took me in;
Oh, I shall tell the angels there,
How Jesus took me in.
