M. E Maxwell

HOW I praise Thee, precious Saviour,

That Thy love laid hold of me;

Thou hast saved and cleansed and filled me,

That I might Thy channel be.

Channels only, blessed Master,

But with all Thy wondrous power,

Flowing through us, Thou canst use us

Every day and every hour.


Just a channel, full of blessing,

To, the thirsty hearts around;

To tell out Thy full salvation

All Thy loving message sound.


Emptied that Thou shouldest fill me

A clean vessel in Thine hand;

With no power but as Thou givest

Graciously with each command.


Witnessing Thy power to save me,

Setting free from self and sin;

Thou hast bought me to possess me,

In Thy fulness, Lord, come in.


Jesus, fill now with Thy Spirit

Hearts that full surrender know;

That the streams of living water

From our inner man may flow.
