I would be thine, O take my heart

Representative Text

1 I would be Thine; O take my heart,
And fill it with Thy love;
Thy sacred image, Lord, impart,
And seal it from above.

2 I would be Thine; but while I strive
To give myself away,
I feel rebellion still alive,
And wander while I pray.

3 I would be Thine: but, Lord, I feel
Evil still lurks within:—
Do Thou Thy majesty reveal,
And overcome my sin.

4 I would be Thine; I would embrace
The Saviour, and adore;
Inspire with faith, infuse thy grace,
And now my soul restore.
