1 Jesus, whom Thy Church doth own
As her Head and King alone,
Bless me, Thy poor member too,
And Thy Spirit's influence give,
That to Thee henceforth I live;
Daily Thou my strength renew.
2 Let Thy living Spirit flow
Thro' Thy members all below,
With its warmth and pow'r divine;
Scattered far apart they dwell,
Yet in ev'ry land, full well,
Lord, Thou knowest who is Thine.
3 Those who serve Thee I would serve,
Never from their union swerve,
Here I cry before Thy face--
Zion, God give thee good speed,
Christ thy footsteps ever lead,
Make thee steadfast in His ways.
