O For A Nobler Brighter Life

O for a nobler, brighter life,
Made pure by Jesus’ love,
O for a spirit, meek and mild,
Like unto His above;
O for a heart with longing filled,
To do my Master’s will,
From ev’ry dross refined and pure,
A heart that Christ can fill.

O for a willing heart and hand,
In readiness alway,
To gladly do His blessed will,
Thro’ all the happy day;
O for a mind intent on Christ,
Wherever I may be,
O for a faithful, fearless stand,
Always, dear Lord, for Thee.
