If I but give myself to thee, O Lord,
Roll over on to thee my life and way,
Acknowledge heavenly truth within thy word,
Believe thy love is constant every day
Then will I know the peace that trusting brings,
The power that issues freely from thy hand,
The joy which rises from eternal springs,
The quality of life which thou hast planned.
O grant me, Lord, the wisdom to believe
That life is only life when lived in thee;
Grant me the faith to ask and then receive
The promised life which Christ would live in me.
Shine thou through me thy love and righteousness –
A glow of hope in this world’s hopelessness.
Psalm 37: 5.6
‘Trust in him…he will make your righteousness shine like the dawn.’
