Do For Me More

O God,
I praise Thee for the happy moment
when I first saw Christ.
Wrath appeased, death destroyed, sin forgiven,
my soul saved...

I want no other Rock to build upon 
than that I have,
Desire no other hope
than that of gospel truth,
Need no other look
than that which gazes on the cross...

In Him I have all that I can hold,
enlarge me to take in more...

If I am in extremity, 
let me feel that He can deliver me;
If driven to the verge of hope
and to the pit of despair,
grant me grace to fall into His arms.

O God, hear me.
Do for me more
than I ask,
or dream.
