While Here Before Thy Cross I Kneel


While here before thy cross I kneel,
To me thy love impart;
With a deep, burning love for souls,
Lord, fill my craving heart.

Refrain:
Lord, fill my craving heart,
Lord, fill my craving heart
With a deep, burning love for souls,
Lord, fill my craving heart.

Deepen in me thy work of grace,
Teach me to do thy will,
Help me to live a spotless life,
Thy holy laws fulfil.

With mighty power my soul baptise,
My longing heart inspire,
That I may from this moment rise
A living flame of fire.

I want in this dark world to shine,
And ever faithful be,
That all around shall know I’m thine
In blest reality.
