1 Supreme High-priest, the pilgrim's light,
My heart for thee prepare;
Thine image stamp, and deeply write
Thy superscription there.
2 Ah, let my forehead bear thy seal,
My arm thy badge retain,
My heart the inward witness fell
That I am born again.
3 Into thy humble mansion come,
Set up thy dwelling here.
Possess my heart, and leave no room
For sin to harbour there:
4 Ah, give me, Lord, the single eye,
Which aims at naught but thee:
I fain would live, and yet not I--
Let Jesus live in me.
5 O that the penetrating sight
And eagle's eye were mine!
Undazzled at the boundless light,
Of majesty divine;
6 That with the armies of the sky
I too may sit and sing,
Add, Saviour, to the eagle's eye,
The dove's aspiring wing.
