577. Channels Only

1 How I praise thee, precious Savior,
that thy love laid hold of me;
thou hast saved and cleansed and filled me
that I might thy channel be.

[Refrain:]
Channels only, blessèd Master,
but with all thy wondrous power
glowing through us, thou canst use us
every day and every hour.

2 Emptied that thou shouldest fill me,
a clean vessel in thy hand,
with no power but as thou givest
graciously with each command. (Refrain)

3 Witnessing thy power to save me,
setting free from self and sin,
thou who bought me to possess me,
in thy fullness, Lord, come in. (Refrain)

4 Jesus, fill now with thy Spirit
hearts that full surrender know;
that the streams of living water
from our inner selves may flow. (Refrain)
