Not what I am, O Lord, but what you are
Not what I am, O Lord, but what you are!
Your love, not mine, commands my doubt depart;
this, this alone, dispels my lurking fear,
and stills the tempest of my anxious heart.
2. Your name is love! I hear it from the cross;
your name is love! I read it in the tomb;
all lesser love is perishable dross,
but this shall light me through time’s deepest gloom.
3. All that I know of you, my Lord and God,
shall fill my soul with peace, my lips with song;
you are my health, my joy, my staff and rod;
leaning on you, in weakness I am strong.
4. More of yourself, O show me hour by hour,
more of your glory, O my God and Lord;
more of yourself, in all your grace and power;
more of your love and truth, incarnate Word!
