1 Oh, not to fill the mouth of fame
My longing soul is stirred;
Oh, give me a diviner name--
Call me thy servant, Lord.
2 Sweet title that delighteth me--
Rank earnestly implored;
Oh, what can reach my dignity?
I am thy servant, Lord.
3 For ever, Lord, thy servant choose-
Naught of thy claim abate;
The glorious name I would lose,
Nor change the sweet estate.
4 In life, in death, on earth, in heaven,
No other name for me;
The same dear style and title given
Through all eternity.
