My mind upon thee, Lord, is stayed

Representative Text

1 My mind upon thee, Lord, is stayed,
My all upon thy altar laid,
O hear my prayer!
And since, in singleness of aim,
I part with all, thy power to gain,
O God, draw near!

Saviour, dear Saviour, draw nearer,
Humble in spirit I kneel at thy cross;
Speak out thy wishes still clearer,
And I will obey at all cost.

2 By every promise thou hast made
And by the price thy love has paid
For my release,
I claim the power to make me whole,
And keep through every hour my soul
In perfect peace.

3 And now by faith the deed is done,
And thou again to live hast come
Within my heart.
And rising now with thee, my Lord,
To lose the world I can afford,
For mine thou art.
