Make Me What You Want Me To Be O Lord


Make me what you want me to be, O Lord,–
I belong to Thee,
In tho’t and in purpose, in deed and word,
Work Thy will in me.

Chorus:
Just what you want me to be, dear Lord,
Just what you want me to be;
All sin washed away–
All Thine from today,
Just what you want me, Lord, make me.

Make me what you want me to be in heart,
Saved from ev’ry sin,
Withholding from Thee not a single part,
Wholly Thine within. [Chorus]

Make me what you want me to be in deed,
Serving Thee alone,
And ready for service, whate’er the need–
Savior, all Thine own. [Chorus]

Make me what you want me to be, to win
Souls who are astray,
To bring others back from the fields of sin,
Savior, while I may. [Chorus]

Make me what you want me to be for I
Trust alone in Thee;
Thy plan and Thy will as the days go by,
Master, work in me. [Chorus]

Make me what you want me to be, dear Lord,
All forever Thine,
And keep me as promised in Holy Word,
By Thy pow’r divine. [Chorus]
