I Hark, my soul, it is the Lord !
"lis thy Sa\iour, hear his word!
Jesus -peaks, he speaks to thee :
" >ay, poor sinner, lov'st thou me ? "
2 I delivered thee when bound,
And. when bleeding, healed thy wound;
Sought thee wand'iiiig, set thee right,
Turned thy darkness into light.
3 Can a mother's tender care
Cease toward the child she bare?
\ es, .-he may forgetful be,
Vet will I remember thee.
4 Mine is an unchanging love.
Higher than the heights above,
I <ceper than the depths beneath,
Free and faithful, strong as death.
5 Thou shalt see my glory soon,
When the work of faith is done.
Partner of my throne shalt be :
"Say, poor sinner, lov'st thou me? "
6 Lord, it is my chief complaint
That my love is still so faint ;
Vet I love thee and adore :
O lor grace to love thee more !
Humble .-/ fi; aliens
I When, my Saviour, sh.dl I be
I'erf ( tly resigned to thee ?
1'oor and vile in my own eyes,
Only in thv wisdom wise?
2 Only thee content to know;
Ignorant of all below ?
Only guided by thy light;
Only mighty in thy might ?
3 So I may the Spirit know,
Let him as he listeth blow ;
Let the manner be unknown.
So I may with thee be one.
4 Fully in my life express
All the heights of holiness;
Sweetly let my spirit prove
All the depths of humble love.

Longing lo be complete in Christ.
I Saviour of the sin-sick soul,
Give me faith to make me whole;
Finish thy great work of grace;
Cut it short in righteousness.
2 Speak the second time, " Be clean ! ""
Take away my inbred sin :
Every stumbling block remove;
Cast it out by perfect love.
3 Nothing less will I require,
Nothing more can I desire:
None but Christ to me be given;
None but < 'hrist in earth fir heaven.
4 () that I might now decrease !
O that all I am might cease !
Let me into nothing fall !
Let mv Lord be all in all.
