1. Lord, Thy pitying eye can see,
How I long to learn of Thee,
Long to trust Thy strength entire;
Fill me with Thy holy fire.

Moved by love, moved by love,
Let me never from Thee rove;
Precious Savior, O so dear,
May I love Thee more and more.

2. Cleansed from self and works of flesh,
Grant me, Lord, Thy truth and grace;
Make me earnest, brave, yet mild;
Keep me ever undefiled. [Refrain]

3. ’Tis so sweet this life of trust,
Yielding not because I must,
As in potter’s hands the clay,
Molded, Lord, in Thine own way. [Refrain]

4. Reaching out for others, too,
There is much for us to do;
In this world so dark with sin,
God of love, shine in, shine in. [Refrain]
