JESUS, Master, whose I am,

Purchased Thine alone to be

By Thy blood, O spotless Lamb,

Shed so willingly for me,

Let my heart be all Thine own,

Let me live to Thee alone.


Other lords have long held sway;

Now, Thy name alone to bear,

Thy dear voice alone obey,

Is my daily, hourly prayer:

Whom have I in heaven but Thee?

Nothing else my joy can be.


Jesus, Master, whom I serve,

Though so feebly and so ill,

Strengthen hand and heart and nerve

All Thy bidding to fulfil;

Open Thou mine eyes to see

All the work Thou hast for me.


Jesus, Master, wilt Thou use

One who owes Thee more than all?

As Thou wilt! I would not choose;

Only let me hear Thy call.

Jesus, let me always be,

In Thy service, glad and free.
