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]
