Oh! the bitter shame


    • Oh! the bitter shame and sorrow, 
    • that a time could ever be, 
    • when I let the Saviour‟s pity 
    • plead in vain, and proudly answered, 
    • ‘All of self, and none of Thee.’ 

    • Yet He found me: I beheld Him 
    • bleeding on the cursed tree, 
    • heard Him pray, ‘Forgive them, Father!’ 
    • And my wistful heart said faintly: 
    • ‘Some of self, and some of Thee.’ 

    • Day by day His tender mercy, 
    • healing, helping, full and free, 
    • sweet and strong, and ah! so patient 
    • brought me lower, while I whispered, 
    • ‘Less of self, and more of Thee.’ 

    • Higher than the highest heavens, 
    • deeper than the deepest sea, 
    • Lord, Thy love at last hath conquered! 
    • Grant me now my soul‟s petition: 
    • ‘None of self, and all of Thee.’ 
    • (Tune 2 repeat last line of each verse.) ......
