Seeking only Thee to know.

2 All that feeds my busy pride,
Cast it evermore aside:
Bid my will to Thine submit,
Lay me humbly at Thy feet!

3 Make me like a little child,
Simple, teachable, and mild;
Seeing only in Thy light,
Walking only in Thy might!

4 Leaning on Thy loving breast,
Where a weary soul may rest;
Feeling well the peace of God
Flowing from Thy precious blood!
