1.O FILIAL Deity,

Accept my new-born cry;

Bee the travail of Thy soul,

Saviour, and be satisfied;

Take me now, possess me whole,

Who for me, for me, hast died.

2.Of life the Fountain Thou,

I know, I feel It now;

Faint and dead no more I droop :

Thou art In me;    Thy supplies,

Every moment springing up,

Into life eternal rise.

3.Thou the good Shepherd art,

From Thee I ne'er shall part; 

Thou my Keeper and my Guide,

Make me still Thy tender care; 

Gently lead me by Thy side, 

Sweetly in Thy bosom bear.

4.Thou art my dally Bread;

O Christ, Thou art my Head; 

Motion, virtue, strength, to me, 

Me Thy living member, flow; 

Nourished I, and fed by Thee, 

Up to Thee In all things grow.

5.Prophet, to me reveal

Thy Father's perfect will; 

Never mortal spake like Thee, 

Human prophet like divine; 

Loud and strong their voices be, 

Small, and still, and Inward Thine.

6.On Thee, my Priest, I call, 

Thy blood atoned for all; 

Still the Lamb as slain appears, 

Still  Thou  stand'st  before  the throne, 

Ever offering up my prayers, 

These presenting with Thine own.

7.Jesu, Thou art my King,

From Thee my strength I bring; 

Shadowed by Thy mighty hand, 

Saviour,who shall pluck me thence? 

Faith supports;   by faith I stand, 

Strong In Thy omnipotence.
