F.R. Havergal


JESUS, Thy life is mine,

Dwell evermore in me;

And let me see

That nothing can untwine

Thy life from mine.


Thy life in me be shown,

Lord, I would henceforth seek

To think and speak

Thy thoughts, Thy words alone,

No more my own.


Thy love, Thy joy Thy peace,

Continuously impart

Unto my heart,

Fresh springs that never cease,

But still increase.


The blest reality

Of resurrection power,

Thy Church’s dower,

Life more abundantly,

Lord, give to me.


Thy fullest gift, O Lord,

Now at Thy Word I claim,

Through Thy dear Name,

And touch the rapturous chord

Of praise forth-poured.


Jesus, my life is Thine,

And evermore shall be

Hidden in Thee.

For nothing can untwine

Thy life from mine.
