Tullius C. O’Kane (1830–1912)


Is it for me, dear Sav­ior,
Thy glo­ry and Thy rest,
For me, so weak and sin­ful?
O shall I be so blessed?


O Sav­ior, my Re­deem­er,
What can I but adore,
And mag­ni­fy and praise Thee,
And love Thee ev­er­more?

Is it for me, Thy wel­come,
Thy gra­cious En­ter in,
For me Thy Come, ye blessed,
For me so full of sin?


O Sav­ior, pre­cious Sav­ior,
My heart is at Thy feet;
I bless Thee, and I love Thee,
And Thee I long to meet.


I’ll be with Thee for­ev­er,
And ne­ver grieve Thee more;
Dear Sav­ior, I must praise Thee,
And love Thee ev­er­more.
