O Jesus Christ, Grow Thou in Me

Congregational singing
Westminster Chapel, London
O Jesus Christ, grow Thou in me,
And all things else recede!
My heart be daily nearer Thee,
From sin be daily freed.
Each day let Thy supporting might
My weakness still embrace;
My darkness vanish in Thy light,
Thy life my death efface.
In Thy bright beams which on me fall,
Fade every evil thought:
That I am nothing, Thou art all,
I would be daily taught.
Make this poor self grow less and less,
Be Thou my life and aim;
O make me daily through Thy grace,
More worthy of Thy name!
Daily more filled with Thee my heart,
Daily from self more free;
Thou, to whom prayer did strength impart,
Of my prayer hearer be!
Let faith in Thee and in Thy might
My every motive move,
Be Thou alone my soul’s delight,
My passion and my love!
