Blessèd Lamb of Calvary,
Let Thy Spirit fall on me;
Let the cleansing, healing flow
Wash and keep me white as snow,
That henceforth my life may be
Bright and beautiful for Thee.

Burn out every selfish thought,
Let Thy will in me be wrought;
Fan my love into a flame,
Send a pentecostal rain,
That henceforth my life may be
Spent in winning souls for Thee.

Teach me how to fight and win
Perfect victory over sin;
Give me a compassion deep,
That will for lost sinners weep,
That henceforth my life may prove
That I serve Thee out of love.
