Father of eternal grace,
Glorify Thyself in me;
Beaming brightly in my face,
May the world Thine image see.

Happy only in Thy love,
Poor, unfriended, or unknown;
Fix my thoughts on things above,
Stay my heart on Thee alone.

Humble, holy, all resigned
To Thy will: Thy will be done!
Give me, Lord, the perfect mind
Of Thy well belovèd Son.

Counting gain and glory loss,
May I tread the path He trod;
Die with Jesus on the cross,
Rise with Him, to Thee, my God!
