Midst all the glories of Thy throne?
To form Thy servant to Thy will,
And fix my dwelling near Thy own?

3 What can a feeble worm repay
For love so infinite as Thine?
The torrent bears my soul away,
The impetuous stream of grace divine.

4 To Thee, my Lord, it bears me on,

By self betrayed, by self undone,
I live by Thy recovering power.

5 Accept a soul so dearly bought;
Bought by Thy life upon the tree;
A soul which by Thy Spirit taught,
Knows no delight but serving Thee.
