372 (C.M.) Augustus Toplady

Compared with Christ, in all beside

No comeliness I see;

The one thing needful, dearest Lord,

Is to be one with Thee.

The sense of Thy redeeming love

Into my soul convey;

Thyself bestow! for Thee alone,

My All-in-All, I pray.

Less than Thyself will not suffice

My comfort to restore;

More than Thyself I can not crave,

E'en Thou can'st give no more.

Loved of my God, for Him again

With love intense I'd burn;

Chosen of Thee ere time began,

I'd choose Thee in return.

Whate'er consists not with Thy love,

Oh, teach me to resign;

I'm rich to all intents of bliss,

If Thou, O God, art mine.
