Savior! fast the moments flee —
O decide my will today.
Bind my heart to follow Thee
Ere the song has died away.
Never let a fear or pain
Turn me to myself again.
Though my strength has failed me long,
Let Thy promise make me strong —
Strong my nature to withstand, —
Strong to hold Thy guiding hand.
All the joy before me set
Teach me never to forget.
If indeed with Thee to stay
I must choose a narrow way, —
If my inmost heart must give
All its purpose, thus to live, —
Still, my portion Thou must be,
Still my spirit cries to Thee.
O for all Thy light to shine!
O for love to keep me Thine.
