ONE THING NEEDFUL




Jesus, engrave it on my heart,
That thou the one thing needful art!
I could from all things parted be,
But never, never, Lord, from thee!


Needful art thou to make me live;
Needful art thou all grace to give;
Needful to guide me lest I stray;
Needful to help me every day.


Needful is thy most precious blood;
Needful is thy correcting rod;
Needful is thy indulgent care;
Needful thy all-prevailing prayer.


Needful thy presence, dearest Lord,
True peace and comfort to afford;
Needful thy promise to impart
Fresh life and vigour to my heart:


Needful art thou to be my stay
Through all life's dark and thorny way;
Nor less in death thou'lt needful be,
When I yield up my soul to thee.


Needful art thou to raise my dust
In shining glory with the just;
Needful when I in heaven appear,
To crown, and to present me there.


Needful art thou my Lord, my love,
To tune my golden harp above;
Needful art thou, my God, my King,
While to eternity I sing.


Then shall my soul, with joy supreme,
Dwell on the dear delightful theme,
Glory and praise be ever his,
The one thing needful Jesus is!
