C. Wesley


OH! might my lot be cast with these,

The least of Jesus’ witnesses;

Oh that my Lord would count me meet,

To wash His dear disciples’ feet!


This only thing do I require:

Thou know’st ’tis all my heart’s desire,

Freely what I receive to give,

The servant of Thy Church to live:


After my lowly Lord to go,

And wait upon Thy saints below;

Enjoy the grace to angels given,

And serve the royal heirs of heaven.


Lord, if I now Thy drawings feel,

And ask according to Thy will,

Confirm the prayer, the seal impart,

And speak the answer to my heart.


Tell me, or Thou shalt never go,

Thy prayer is heard; it shall be so:

The word hath passed Thy lips, and I

Shall with Thy people live and die.
