Representative Text

1 Sad and weary with my longing
Filled with shame because of sin,
As I am in conscious weakness,
Here I must salvation win.

All I have I leave for Jesus,
I am counting it but dross;
I am coming to the Master,
I am clinging to the Cross.

2 O the joy of knowing Jesus!
It is dawning on my soul;
I am finding his salvation,
And the power that makes me whole. [Chorus]

3 O refine me by thy Spriit!
Make my earthly life sublime
With my heart a home for Jesus,
Till I've done with earth and time. [Chorus]
