Jesus, Master, Whose I Am

Full Text

1 Jesus, Master, whose I am,
purchased yours alone to bear,
by your blood, O Spotless Lamb,
shed so willingly for me,
let my heart be all your own,
let me live to you alone.

2 Having turned from other ways,
now your name alone to bear,
your dear voice alone obey
is my daily, hourly prayer.
Looking up to heav'n I see
no one else my joy can be.

3 Jesus, Master, I am yours;
keep me faithful, keep me near;
as your radiance through me pours
all my homeward way to cheer.
Jesus, at you feet I fall.
O be now my all in all!
