505. 7s. M. C. Wesley. The Simplicity of Christ.
1 Lord! that I may learn of thee,
Give me true simplicity;
Wean my soul, and keep it low,
Willing thee alone to know.
2 Of my boasted wisdom spoiled,
Docile, helpless as a child;
Only seeing in thy light,
Only walking in thy might.
3 Then infuse the living grace,
Truthful soul of righteousness;
Knowledge, love divine, impart, --
Life eternal to my heart.
