1 Master, I own thy lawful claim;
Thine, wholly thine I long to be;
Thou seest, at last, I willing am,
Where'er thou go'st, to follow thee,
Myself in all things to deny,
Thine, wholly thine, to live and die.
2 Whate'er my sinful flesh requires,
For thee I cheerfully forego,
My covetous and vain desires,
My hopes of happiness below,
My senses' and my passions' food,
And all my thirst for creature good.
3 Pleasure and wealth and praise no more
Shall lead my captive soul astray;
My fond pursuits I all give o'er,
Thee, only thee, resolved t' obey;
My own in all things to resign,
And know no other will but thine.
