PRESSING TOWARDS PERFECTION




Indulged with various means,
The good attained how small!
Perfection I would humbly seek,
But oh how short I fall!


Yet will I run and strive,
Still pressing to the goal;
Nor be contented with a part,
Till I possess the whole.


The mark at which I aim,
Is likeness to my Lord;
Till thatís attained Iím not at rest,
Iím only on the road.


Oh thou eternal Source
Of light and strength divine,
Quicken by efficacious grace
This sluggish soul of mine.
