From "Rivers of Living Water" by Ruth Paxson Oh! the bitter shame and sorrow, That a time could ever be, When I let the Saviour's pity Plead in vain, and proudly answered - "All of self and none of Thee."Yet He found me: I beheld Him Bleeding on the cursed tree;Heard Him pray, "Forgive them, Father." And my wistful heart said faintly-"Some of self and some of Thee."Day by day His tender mercy, Healing, helping, full and free,Sweet and strong, and oh! so patient, Brought me lower while I whispered-"Less of self and more of Thee."Higher than the highest heavens, Deeper than the deepest sea;Lord, thy love at last has conquered; Grant me now my soul's petition - "None of self and all of Thee."
Brother, you may have gotten this hymn from that particular book, but the hymn is actually written by Theodore Monod.Just thought I'd make that clear.Great hymn too by the way. I have never heard it sung, but I have read the lyrics to it before..
