Representative Text

1 Jesus, my Lord, Thou art my life,
My rest in labor, shield in strife;
Thy love begets my love to Thee;
Thy fullness that which filleth me.

2 Long, long I struggled e’er I knew
My struggling vain, my life untrue;
I sought by effort of my own
The gift that comes from Christ alone.

3 I pray’d and wrestled in my pray’r,
I wrought, but self was ever there;
Joy never came, nor rest, nor peace,
Nor faith, nor hope, nor love’s increase.

4 My effort vain, my weakness lean’d,
On Christ alone; to Him I turn’d,
Content to let His fullness be
God’s boundless gift of grace to me.
