Jesus, engrave it on my heart

Representative Text

1 Jesus! engrave it on my heart,
That Thou the One thing needful art:
I could from all things parted be,
But never, never, Lord, for Thee!

2 Needful is Thy most precious blood,
To reconcile my soul to God;
Needful in Thy indulgent care;
Needful Thy all-prevailing prayer.

3 Needful Thy presence, dearest Lord!
True peace and comfort to afford;
Needful Thy promise, to impart
Fresh life and vigor to my heart.

4 Needful art Thou, my Guide! my Stay!
Thro' all life's dark and weary way;
Nor less in death Thou'lt needful be,
To bring my spirit home to Thee.

5 Then needful still my God! my King!
Thy Name eternally I'll sing:
Glory and praise be ever His,
The One Thing needful, Jesus is!

Amen.
