Hymn: My Gracious Lord, I Own Thy Right

    Hymn: My Gracious Lord, I Own Thy Right
    By: Philip Doddridge

     

    My gracious Lord, I own Thy right
    To every service I can pay,
    And call it my supreme delight
    To hear Thy dictates, and obey.

    What is my being but for Thee,
    Its sure support, its noblest end?
    Thy ever-smiling face to see,
    And serve the cause of such a friend.

    I would not breathe for worldly joy,
    Or to increase my worldly good;
    Nor future days nor powers employ
    To spread a sounding name abroad.

    ’Tis to my Savior I would live,
    To Him, who for my ransom died;
    Nor could untainted Eden give
    Such bliss as crowns me at His side.

    His work my hoary age shall bless,
    When youthful vigor is no more;
    And my last hour of life confess
    His love hath animating power.
