ASK WHAT THOU WILT




And dost Thou say, “Ask what thou wilt”?
Lord, I would seize the golden hour;
I pray to be released from guilt,
And freed from sin and Satan’s power.


More of Thy presence, Lord, impart,
More of Thine image let me bear;
Erect Thy throne within my heart,
And reign without a rival there.


Give me to read my pardon sealed,
And from Thy joy to draw my strength;
Oh, by Thy boundless love revealed
In all its height, and breadth, and length.


Grant these requests—I ask no more,
But to Thy care the rest resign;
Sick, or in health, rich or poor,
All shall be well if Thou art mine.


---Alternative verses---


Give me to read my pardon sealed,
And from Thy joy to draw my strength;
To have Thy boundless love revealed
In all its height, and breadth, and length.


Grant these requests—I ask no more,
But to Thy care the rest resign;
Living or dying, rich or poor,
All shall be well if Thou art mine.
