1 To Thee, to Thee, away from self,
My soul would ever flee;
Thine only, I’d be all Thine own,
Then draw me nearer Thee,
The world is empty, and no more
Will I its wealth desire;
To Thee alone eternally
My heart shall e’er aspire.
2 Thou, only Thou, none else for me,
There’s rest in Thee alone;
What is the world without Thee whom
I’ve chosen for mine own?
Then die, self-will, die day by day,
Let weary struggles cease,
And let the will renewed by Thee,
In strength, O Lord, increase!
