Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

My soul's desire

Full Text

1 Only one thing my soul desires—
Just to be what my Lord requires;
Just to be such as He will own;
Just to be His and His alone.

Just to go where He may lead me,
Ready for Him the cross to bear;
Just to work where He may need me,
Just to be faithful is my pray’r.

2 Just to lay ev’ry idol by—
Ready to answer “Here am I;”
Willing to let His will decree
Just what and where my work shall be. [Refrain]

3 Fill’d with the Holy Ghost may I
Labor for Him as days go by;
Let me a faithful reaper be,
Gathering for eternity. [Refrain]

4 Jesus, the promise I would claim!
Kindle the Penticostal flame!
Breathe upon me Thy Spirit now,
As at the mercy seat I bow. [Refrain]
