Aaron R. Wolfe (1821–1902)


Complete in Thee! No work of mine
May take, dear Lord, the place of Thine;
Thy blood hath par­don bought for me,
And I am now com­plete in Thee.

Complete in Thee! No more shall sin,
Thy grace hath con­quered, reign with­in;
Thy voice shall bid the tempt­er flee,
And I shall stand com­plete in Thee.

Complete in Thee—each want sup­plied,
And no good thing to me de­nied;
Since Thou my por­tion, Lord, wilt be,
I ask no more, com­plete in Thee.

Dear Sav­ior, when be­fore Thy bar
All tribes and tongues as­sem­bled are,
Among Thy chos­en will I be,
At Thy right hand, com­plete in Thee.
