1 God of almighty Love,
By whose sufficient grace
I lift my heart to things above,
And humbly seek Thy face.
Through Jesus Christ the Just
My faint desires receive,
And let me in Thy goodness trust,
And to Thy glory live.
2 Whate’er I speak or do,
Thy glory be my aim;
My offerings all be offered through
Thy ever-blessed Name:
Jesus, my single eye
Be fixed on Thee alone;
Thy Name be praised on earth, on high,
Thy will by all be done!
