Holy, and true, and righteous Lord,
I wait to prove Thy perfect will,
Be mindful of Thy gracious Word,
And stamp me with Thy Spi­rit’s seal.

Open my faith’s interior eye,
Display Thy glo­ry from above;
And all I am shall sink and die,
Lost in astonishment and love.

Confound, o’erpower me by Thy grace,
I would be by myself abhorred;
All might, all majesty, all praise,
All glo­ry, be to Christ my Lord.

Now let me gain perfection’s height,
Now let me into nothing fall;
Be less than nothing in Thy sight,
And feel that Christ is all in all!
