I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord. Philippians 3:8
Words: B. M. Adams, in The Revivalist, edited by Joseph Hillman (New York: Joseph Hillman, 1868), number 284.
If you know Adams’ or Coffin’s full name, where to get good photos of them (head & shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels),
Sad and weary with my longing,
Filled with shame because of sin;
As I am in conscious weakness,
Here I would salvation win.
All I have I leave for Jesus,
I am counting it but dross;
I am coming to the Master,
I am clinging to the cross.
Clinging to the cross.
O the joy of knowing Jesus,
It is dawning on my soul;
I am finding His salvation,
And the power that makes me whole.
O refine me by Thy Spirit,
Make my earthly life sublime,
With my heart a home for Jesus,
Till I’m done with earth and time.
