From the world of sin, and noise,
And hurry, I withdraw ; For the small and inward Voice
I wait with humble awe : Silent am I now and still ; Dare not in Thy presence move: To my waiting soul reveal
The secret of Thy love !
Thou hast undertook for me 3 For me to death wast sold;
Wisdom in a mystery Of bleeding love unfold !
Teach the lesson of Thy cross ;
Let me die, with Thee to reign !
All things let me count but loss, So I may Thee regain !
Show me, as my soul can bear,
The depth of inbred sin ; All the unbelief declare,
The pride that lurks within : Take me, whom Thyself hast bought 1 Bring into captivity Every high aspiring thought,
That would not stoop to Thee !
Lord, my time is in Thy hand ;
My soul to Thee convert! Thou canst make me understand,
Though I am slow of heart. Thine, in whom I live and move, Thine the work, the power is Thine ! Thou art Wisdom, Power, and Love ;
And all thou art is mine !
Charles Wesley. 1
