779 (S.M.) Charles Wesley

I want a heart to pray,

To pray, and never cease;

Never to murmur at Thy stay,

Or wish my suff'rings less.

This blessing above all,

Always to pray, I want;

On Thee in each distress to call,

And never, never faint.

I want with all my heart

Thy pleasure to fulfill;

To know myself, and what Thou art,

And what Thy perfect will.

I want a true regard,

A single, steady aim,

A pure desire that all may learn

To glorify Thy name.

I want — I know not what;

I want my wants to see:

I want — alas! what want I not,

When Christ is not with me?
