F. R. Havergal

UNTO him that hath Thou givest

Evermore abundantly;

Lord, I live because Thou livest,

Therefore give more life to me,

Therefore speed me in the race,

Therefore let me grow in grace.


Deepen all Thy work, O Master,

Strengthen every downward root;

Only do Thou ripen faster,

More and more Thy pleasant fruit;

Purge me, prune me, self abase;

Only let me grown in grace.


Let me grow by sun and shower,

Every moment water me;

Make me really, hour by hour,

More and more conformed to Thee,

That Thy loving eye may trace

Day by day my growth in grace.


Jesus, grace for grace outpouring,

Show me ever greater things;

Raise me higher, sunward soaring,

Mounting as on eagle-wings.

By the brightness of Thy face,

Jesus, let me grow in grace.


Let me, then, be always growing,

Never, never standing still,

Listening, learning, better knowing

Thee and Thy most blessed will.

Till I reach Thy holy place

Daily let me know in grace.
