I am thine, O Lord, I have heard
And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to thee.
Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,
By the power of grace divine;
May my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
And my will be lost in Thine.
O the pure delight of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend,
When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God,
I commune as friend with friend!
