Representative Text

1. Jesus, see me at Thy feet,
With my sacrifice complete;
I am bringing all to Thee,
Thine alone I’ll be.

Have Thy way, Lord, have Thy way,
This with all my heart I say;
I’ll obey Thee, come what may;
Dear Lord, have Thy way.

2. O how patient Thou hast been
With my pride and inbred sin!
O what mercy Thou hast shown,
Grace and love unknown! [Refrain]

3. Lord, I loathe myself and sin,
Enter now and make me clean;
Make my heart just like Thine own;
Come, Lord, take Thy throne. [Refrain]

4. Lord, Thy love has won my all,
Let Thy Spirit on me fall;
Burn up every trace of sin;
Make me pure within. [Refrain]

5. Praise the Lord, the work is done!
Praise the Lord, the victory’s won!
Now the blood is cleansing me,
From all sin I’m free. [Refrain]
