1 Thy voice I hear, Lord Jesus,
Bidding me walk with Thee,—
Carry the cross Thou givest,
Rough tho’ the path may be;
Often I’ve dreaded leaving
All for Thyself alone,
Hoping I still might please Thee,
Now I’d be all Thine own.

Refrain:
Only to love and serve Thee,
Daily to bear the cross,
Counting for Thee, my Saviour,
Treasures of earth as dross.

2 The world’s vain fleeting follies
Have kept from liberty,
Now I renounce each idol
That I loved more than Thee,
Henceforth to serve Thee only
All my life I would spend,
Knowing Thy grace unfailing
Will keep me to the end. [Refrain]

3 With Thee I’d walk, my Saviour,—
Following day by day,
Tho’ it mean trial and hardship,
Sacrifice all the way,—
For Thou hast grace sufficient,
With Thee I will not fear.
Heaven would lose its sweetness
If all were easy here. [Refrain]
