4 Renew my will from day to day!

Blend it with thine ! and take away
All that now makes it hard to say, .

“ Thy will be done!” 5 Though Thou hast call'd me to resign

What most I prized, (it ne'er was mine,)
I have but yielded what was Thine :

“ Thy will be done !” 6 Should grief or sickness waste away

My life in premature decay ;
Through Christ my Saviour still I'd say,

“ Thy will be done ! ” 7 Let but my fainting heart be blest

With thy sweet spirit for its guest ;
To Thee, O Lord, I leave the rest :

“ Thy will be done !" 8 Then when to Heaven's bright realms I soar,

These words, so mix'd with tears before,
I'll sing triumphant evermore:

“ Thy will be done !"

COME UNTO ME. 1 Just as I am—without one plea

But that Thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou bid'st me come to Thee,

O Lamb of God, I come

2 Just as I am-and waiting not

To rid my soul of one dark blot,
To Thee, whose blood can cleanse each spot,

O Lamb of God, I come! 3 Just as I am—though toss'd about

With many a conflict, many a doubt,
Fightings and fears within, without,

O Lamb of God, I come! 4 Just as I am-poor, wretched, blind;

Sight, riches, healing of the mind,
Yea, all I need, in Thee to find,

O Lamb of God, I come! 5 Just as I am—Thou wilt receive,

Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve,
Because thy promise I believe,

O Lamb of God, I come! 6 Just as I am—Thy love unknown

Has broken every barrier down ;
Now, to be Thine, yea, Thine alone,

O Lamb of God, I come! 7 Just as I am of that free love,

“The breadth, length, depth, and height” to prove, Here for a season, then above,

O Lamb of God, I come !

ON LEAVING SCHOOL. 1 LORD, dismiss us with thy blessing ;

Fill our hearts with joy and peace ; Let us each, Thy love possessing, Triumph in redeeming grace :

O refresh us, Travelling through this wilderness. 2 Thanks we give, and adoration,

For Thy gospel's joyful sound;
May the fruits of Thy salvation
In our hearts and lives be found :

Ever faithful
To the truth may we be found :

3 So whene'er the signal's given,

Us from earth to call away,
Borne on angel-wings to heaven,
Glad the summons to obey,

May we ever
Reign with Christ in endless day.


1 Dismiss us with Thy blessing, Lord,

Help us to feed upon Thy word;
All that has been amiss forgive,
And let Thy truth within us live.

2 Though we are guilty, Thou art good :

Wash all our works in Jesu's blood : Give ev'ry troubled soul release ; And bid us all depart in peace.

1 For a season call'd to part,

Let us now ourselves commend
To the gracious eye and heart

Of our ever-present Friend.

2 Jesus, hear our humble prayer:

Tender Shepherd of thy sheep,
Let Thy mercy and Thy care

All our souls in safety keep.

What we each have now been taught,

Let our memories retain; May we, if we live, be brought

Here to meet in peace again.

4 Then, if Thou instruction bless,

Songs of praises shall be given ;
We'll our thankfulness express,

Here on earth, and when in heaven.


1 Now may He, who from the dead

Brought the Shepherd of the sheep, Jesus Christ, our King and Head,

All our souls in safety keep. 2 May He teach us to fulfil

What is pleasing in His sight,
Perfect us in all His will,

And preserve us day and night.
