Give me the faith which can remove

Give me the faith which can remove
and sink the mountain to a plain;
give me the child-like, praying love
which longs to build your house again;
fill with your love my longing heart-
possess my soul in every part.

2. I want a steady, strong desire,
I want a calmly fervent zeal
to rescue sinners from the fire,
to snatch them from the brink of hell
and turn them to a pardoning God,
and save each soul through Jesus’ blood.

3. I would the precious time redeem,
and longer live for this alone,
to spend, and to be spent, for them
who have not yet my Saviour known;
fully on these my mission prove,
and only breathe, to breathe your love.

4. My talents, gifts and graces, Lord,
into your mighty hands receive;
and let me live to preach your word,
and let me to your glory live,
my every passing moment spend
in making known the sinners’ friend.

5. Enlarge, inspire and fill my heart
with energy and love divine!
So shall I all my strength exert,
so shall your zeal and love be mine,
to lead them to your wounded side-
the sheep for whom their shepherd died.
