1 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,
'None of you and all of me!'

2 Yet you found me; there I saw you
dying and in agony,
heard you pray, 'Forgive them, Father',
and my wistful heart said faintly,
'Some of you and some of me.'

3 Day by day your tender mercy,
healing, helping, full and free,
firm and strong, with endless patience
brought me lower, while I whispered,
'More of you and less of me.'

4 Higher than the highest heaven,
deeper than the deepest sea,
Lord, your love at last has conquered:
grant me now my spirit's longing,
'All of you and none of me!'
