Representative Text

1 I want that my feet should be firm on the Rock;
I want the assurance divine,
The Spirit’s own witness, and sealed with the blood,
That he, my Redeemer, is mine.

And this is my prayer, that still I may wear
The image of Christ in my heart;
I want his dear presence to dwell with me here,
And never, no, never depart.

2 I want to be cleansed every moment from sin,
And filled with the fullness of love,
I want to be perfect and pure in his sight,
Who purchased my mansion above. [Refrain]

3 I want to walk worthy my calling in him
Who suffered and languished for me;
I want to grow daily in knowledge and grace,
And more like my Saviour to be. [Refrain]

4 I want to be earnest in seeking the lost
And bringing them home to the Lord,
I want to be clad in the armor of faith,
And strong in the strength of his word. [Refrain]

5 I want to enjoy with my Saviour on earth
His constant communion so sweet,
I want to be wholly conformed to his will,
And lay down my own at his feet. [Refrain]
