C.M.


1
SAVIOUR we long to follow Thee,
Do Thou our hearts prepare
To count all else, whate'er it be,
Unworthy of our care.
2
We are not now our own, but Thine,
The purchase of Thy blood,
And made, by grace and love divine,
The sons and heirs of God.
3
Thy Spirit, too, the present seal
Of all the Father's love,
Dwells in us now and doth reveal
The glorious rest above.
4
Thy life is now beyond the grave;
Our souls Thou hast set free;
Life, strength and grace in Thee we have,
And we are one with Thee.
5
O teach us so Thy power to know,
As risen, Lord, with Thee,
That we may own, while here below,
Thyself our life to be.
