Lyrics

Verse 1
Saviour, to thee our all we surrender,
Take thou our hearts, and let them be thine;
Thou hast bestow’d thy mercy so tender,
O bless us now with power divine.

Chorus
Power divine it floweth so free,
Like a wide exhaustless sea;
Saviour, while it onward rolls,
Let some waves wash o’er our souls.

Verse 2
Give us thy power, singing or praying,
Power to stand whate’er may betide;
Power to lead some soul that is straying,
Back to the stream that flows from thy side.

Verse 3
Touch thou our tongues while telling the story,
How by thy death our souls were set free;
Help us, O Lord, to show forth thy glory,
Till all the earth sings praises to thee.

Verse 4
Bow down thine ear and hear us, O Saviour,
Stamp thou thine image now on each heart;
Seal us thine own and keep us forever,
Never again from thee to depart.
