Make me a captive


    • Make me a captive, Lord, 
    • and then I shall be free; 
    • force me to render up my sword, 
    • and I shall conqueror be. 
    • I sink in life's alarms 
    • when by myself I stand; 
    • imprison me within Thine arms, 
    • and strong shall be my hand. 

    • My heart is weak and poor 
    • until its master find; 
    • it has no spring of action sure, 
    • it varies with the wind. 
    • It cannot freely move, 
    • 'til Thou hast wrought its chain; 
    • enslave it with Thy matchless love, 
    • and deathless it shall reign. 

    • My power is faint and low 
    • till I have learned to serve; 
    • it wants the needed fire to glow, 
    • it wants the breeze to nerve; 
    • it cannot drive the world, 
    • until itself be driven; 
    • its flag can only be unfurled 
    • when Thou shalt breathe from heaven. 

    • My will is not my own 
    • till Thou hast made it Thine; 
    • if it would reach a monarch's throne 
    • it must its crown resign; 
    • it only stands unbent, 
    • amid the clashing strife, 
    • when on Thy bosom it has leant 
    • and found in Thee its life.
