1 Jesus, Jesus, nought but Jesus
Shall be e'er my wish and zeal;
Now I form the resolution
That, as Jesus wills, I will,
For my heart, which He hath filled,
Ever cries: Lord, as Thou wilt.
2 E'er 'tis He for whom I'm living,
Whom I'm loving faithfully;
He it is to whom I'm giving
What in love He gave to me,
His dear blood hides all my guilt.
Lead Thy child, Lord, as Thou wilt.
3 Seems e'er aught to be a treasure,
Which offensive is to Thee.
Oh, then take away such pleasure,
Real blessings give to me.
Let my heart with Thee be filled;
Take myself, Lord, as Thou wilt.
4 Unto death let me endeavor
Thee to please in good and ill;
In me, through me, with me ever,
Lord accomplish Thy good will,
Let me die, on Thee, Lord, built,
When, and where, and as Thou wilt.
5 Saviour, I will sing thy praises,
For thou unto me didst bring
Thine own self and all Thy graces,
That I joyfully may sing:--
Be it unto me, my shield,
As Thou wilt, Lord, as Thou wilt.
