O the bitter shame and sorrow,
1
O the bitter shame and sorrow,
That a time could ever be,
When I let the Savior กฏ s pity
Plead in vain, and proudly answered,
All of self, and none of Thee!
2
Yet He found me; I beheld Him
Bleeding on th กฏ accurs จจ d tree,
Heard Him pray, Forgive them, Father!
And my wistful heart said faintly,
Some of self, and some of Thee!
3
Day by day His tender mercy,
Healing, helping, full and free,
Sweet and strong, and ah! so patient,
Brought me lower, while I whispered,
Less of self, and more of Thee!
4
Higher than the highest heavens,
Deeper than the deepest sea,
Lord, Thy love at last hath conquered:
Grant me now my supplication,
None of self, and all of Thee!
