1 Jesus, my Saviour, let me be
More perfectly conformed to Thee;
Implant each grace, each sin dethrone,
And form my temper like Thine own.
2 My foe, when hungry, let me feed,
Share in his grief, supply his need;
The haughty frown may I not fear,
But with a lowly meekness bear.
3 Let the envenomed heart and tongue,
The hand out-stretched to do me wrong,
Excite no feelings in my breast
But such as Jesus once expressed.
4 To others let me always give
What I from others would receive;
Good deeds for evil ones return,
Nor, when provoked, with anger burn.
5 This will proclaim how bright and fair
The precepts of the Gospel are;
And God Himself, the God of love,
His own resemblance will approve.
