1 Make use of me, my God;
Let me not be forgot,
A broken vessel, cast aside,
One whom Thou needest not.

2 Thou usest all Thy works,
The weakest things that be;
Each has a service of its own,
For all things wait on Thee.

3 All things do serve Thee here,
All creatures, great and small;
Make use of me—of me, my God,
The weakest of them all.

Horatius Bonar was born at Edinburgh, in 1808. His education was obtained at the High School, and the University of his native city. He was ordained to the ministry, in 1837, and since then has been pastor at Kelso. In 1843, he joined the Free Church of Scotland. His reputation as a religious writer was first gained on the publication of the "Kelso Tracts," of which he was the author. He has also written many other prose works, some of which have had a very large circulation. Nor is he less favorably known as a religious poet and hymn-writer. The three series of "Hymns of Faith and Hope," have passed through several editions. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872… Go to person page >
