O Lord who formedst me to wear




O Lord, who formedst me to wear
the image of thy Godhead here;
who soughtest me with tender care
through all my wanderings wild and drear:

O Love, I give myself to thee,
thine ever, only thine to be.



O Love, who ere life's earliest morn
on me thy choice hast gently laid;
O Love, who here as man wast born,
and wholly like to us wast made:

O Love, I give myself to thee,
thine ever, only thine to be.



O Love, who once in time wast slain,
pierced through and through with bitter woe!
O Love, who wrestling thus didst gain
that we eternal joy might know:

O Love, I give myself to thee,
thine ever, only thine to be.



O Love, who lovest me for aye,
who for my soul dost ever plead;
O Love, who didst my ransom pay,
whose power sufficeth in my stead:

O Love, I give myself to thee,
thine ever, only thine to be.



O Love, whose voice shall bid me rise
from out this dying life of ours;
O Love, whose hand o'er yonder skies
shall set me in the fadeless bowers:

O Love, I give myself to thee,
thine ever, only thine to be.
