Representative Text

1 Jesus, Lord and Savior, come!
Lift my upward to thy throne;
Make me pure and clean within,
Cleanse me, Lord, from every sin.

Come, O Lord,
Come dwell, come, dwell in me.
Dwell in me, and I in thee.

2 Here am I a sinner, weak,
Make me humble, make me meek;
Lord, oh, come and dwell with me,
Dwell in me and I in thee. [Refrain]

3 Guide my steps, O Savior, guide,
Land me safe on Canaan's side;
While I make thy way my own,
Lead me, Savior, to thy throne. [Refrain]

4 Jesus, Lord, possess my soul;
Let thy grace illume the whole;
Make my heart thy dwelling place,
Make me, Lord, to know thy grace. [Refrain]
