For Self-Renunciation.

Father of might, my bonds I feel,

And long for perfect liberty;

I would deny my selfish will,

And, Father, give up all to Thee!

O, with Thy strength my weakness fill!

That strength shall every foe subdue;

The doubts that tempt, the sins that kill,

The wishes to the cross untrue.

A sinless mind in me reveal,

Thy spirit’s fulness, Lord, impart!

Till all my spotless life shall tell

The abundance of a loving heart.

So shall I own Thy perfect sway,

And, sitting humbly at Thy feet,

Thy law with all my heart obey,

And all my soul to Thee submit.
