Representative Text

1. Dear Master, in Thy way
Our willing feet shall tread;
What joy Thy mandate to obey,
Our great and glorious Head.

2. The closing waters hid
Our former world, and we,
Seeking through death our Savior’s side,
Rejoice to die with Thee.

3. And as we rise again,
Be this confession giv’n,
That we have ris’n with Christ to reign
The Lord of earth and Heav’n.

4. So would we die to live,
And live no more to die;
Our risen lives, O Christ, receive
And seal them in the sky.

Thomas, John, M. A., was born at Maesteg, Glamorganshire, in 1859; educated for the Baptist ministry at Pontypool College and Bangor University College; has been Pastor at Huddersfield, &c., and is now (1906) minister of the Myrtle Street Baptist Chapel, Liverpool. Mr. Thomas took his M.A. degree at the London University in honours. His connection with hymnody is slight. His hymn "Dear Master, in Thy way" (Adult Baptism) was originally printed in a Baptist newspaper, and then included in The Baptist Church Hymnal, 1900. His published works are mainly on theological subjects. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, New Supplement (1907)  Go to person page >
