One thing I of the Lord desire


    • One thing I of the Lord desire, 
    • for all my path hath miry been: 
    • be it by water or by fire, 
    • oh, make me clean, oh, make me clean! 

    • So wash me, Thou, without within, 
    • or purge with fire, if that must be; 
    • no matter how, if only sin 
    • die out in me, die out in me. 

    • I watch to shun the miry way, 
    • and staunch the springs of guilty 
    • thought; 
    • but, watch and struggle as I may, 
    • pure I am not, pure I am not. 

    • If clearer vision Thou impart, 
    • grateful and glad my soul shall be, 
    • but yet to have a purer heart 
    • is more to me, is more to me. 

    • Yea, only as this heart is clean 
    • may larger vision yet be mine, 
    • for mirrored in the depths are seen 
    • the things divine, the things divine. ......
