Representative Text

1 If Thou impart Thyself to me,

Fill every want my spirit feels,
And break off every chain!

3 From sin, the guilt, the power, the pain
Thou wilt redeem my soul:
Lord, I believe, and not in vain;
My faith shall make me whole.

4 I too with Thee shall walk in white,
With all Thy saints shall prove
What is the length, and breadth, and height,
And depth of perfect love.

Amen.
