1 And must I part with all I have,
My dearest Lord for thee?
It is but right since thou hast done
Much more than this for me.
2 Yes, let it go--one look from thee
Will more than make amends,
For all the losses I sustain
Of credit, riches, friends.
3 Ten thousand worlds, then thousand lives,
How worthless they appear,
Compared with thee, supremely good,
Divinely bright and fair!
4 Savior of souls, could I from thee
A single smile obtain,
Though destitute of all things else,
I'd glory in my gain.
The Hartford Selection of Hymns from the most approved authors, 1799
And must I part with all I have? B. Beddome. [Self Denial.] Given in Rippon's Selection, 1787, No. 281, in 4 stanzas of 4 lines. It is almost unknown to modem collections in Great Britain, but in America it is found in several hymnals, including the Baptist Hymn & Tune Book 1871; Songs for the Sanctuary, 1865; the Dutch Reformed Hymns for the Church, 1869; Hatfield'a Church Hymn Book, 1872; and others. In all of these, the arrangement of the stanzas and the text varies, both from each other, and from the original. Original text in modern editions of Rippon, and in R. Hall's edition of Beddome's Hymns, 1817, No. 225, in 4 stanzas of 4 lines.
