Jesus, Master, whom I serve

Full Text

1 Jesus, Master, whom I serve,
Though so feebly and so ill,
Strengthen hand and heart and nerve
All thy bidding to fulfill;
Open thou mine eyes to see,
All the work thou hast for me.

2 Lord, thou needest not, I know,
Service such as I can bring;
Yet I long to prove and show
Full allegiance to my King!
Thou an honor art to me;
Let me be a praise to thee.

3 Jesus, Master, wilt thou use
One who owes thee more than all?
As thou wilt! I would not choose,
Only let me hear thy call.
Jesus! let me always be
In thy service glad and free.
