Representative Text

1 Firm in thy strong control,
O Father, hold my soul
Faithful to thee!
If e’er I fear to fall,
Then let me hear thee call:
I am thy all in all,
Trust thou in me.

2 A revelation new
Of what thy grace can do,
O God, be mine!
The need is all my own,
The grace is thine alone,
Grace, deep as need, made known,
Thy grace divine.

3 A power within reveal,
Thy power to help and heal,
Strong, changeless, free.
O by temptations sore,
By sorrows that he bore,
Who loves me evermore,
Give victory!

4 A freeman, once a slave,
Freedom to serve I crave,
To serve but thee.
Blessing and being blest,
Be this my only quest,
How I may serve thee best,
Till thee I see.
