1 Father of might, my bonds I feel,
And long for perfect liberty;
I would deny my selfish will,
And, Father, give up all to Thee!
2 O, with Thy strength my weakness fill!
That strength shall every foe subdue;
The doubts that tempt, the sins that kill,
The wishes to the cross untrue.
3 A sinless mind in me reveal,
Thy spirit's fulness, Lord, impart!
Till all my spotless life shall tell
The abundance of a loving heart.
4 So shall I own Thy perfect sway,
And, sitting humbly at Thy feet,
Thy law with all my heart obey,
And all my soul to Thee submit.
