Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

SAVIOUR, I long to be
Nearer to thee;
In word and deed and thought
Holy to be.
O take this heart of mine
And seal me ever thine,
Fill me with love divine,
For service, Lord!

2 Make me a blazing fire
Where’er I go,
That to a dying world
Thee I may show:
How thou hast bled and died
That none may be denied,
But in thy bleeding side
A refuge find.

3 So shall my moments flow
In praising thee,
For thou hast never failed
To strengthen me.
Filled with the Holy Ghost,
Saved to the uttermost,
In Christ alone I’ll boast
And forward go.
