C. Wesley

FATHER, Son and Holy Ghost,

One in Three, and Three in One,

As by the celestial host,

Let Thy will on earth be done;

Praise by all to Thee be given,

Glorious Lord of earth and heaven!


Vilest of the sinful race,

Lo, I answer to Thy call:

Meanest vessel of Thy grace,

Grace divinely free for all;

Lo, I come to do Thy will,

All Thy counsel to fulfil.


If so poor a worm as I,

May to Thy great glory live,

All my actions sanctify,

All my words and thoughts receive:

Claim me for Thy service, claim

All I have, and all I am.


Take my soul and body’s powers,

Take my memory, mind, and will;

All my goods and all my hours,

All I know, and all I feel;

All I think, or speak, or do;

Take my heart, but make it new.
