FORSAKING ALL FOR CHRIST




How kind is my Saviour,
Who deigned to be,
So closely united
To sinners like me:
Thou vile and unworthy,
He calls me his friend,
And to my distresses
Will ever attend.


My debts are discharged,
My foes are subdued,
My soul is enlarged,
My nature renewed
Then let my devotion
To Jesus increase,
And heíll be my portion,
When this life shall cease.


Through fire and through water,
Iíll go with my Lord,
In full expectation,
He strength will afford:
My Jesus Iíll follow,
For him would I die,
Then sound forth his praises,
In yonder bright sky.
