Representative Text

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.

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]
