Verse 1
O Saviour Christ, come down to me
Help me, O Lord, with grace divine
Oh expel the love of the world
In me, prepare a place for Thee.

Verse 2
Fill Thou my spirit with Thyself
And make me free, yes, free indeed
I long not after other things
Except Thee, Lord both day and night.

Verse 3
As long as I am here on earth
I desire no other good thing
I will bid farewell to the world
It's deceits, fantacies and dreams.

Verse 4
The way that my blest Saviour trod
With all haste, I will seek and find
Neither will my heart crave to know
Any love, but my Saviour's love.

Verse 5
From henceforth, let not the pleasure
Of life have a place in my heart
Make it all Thine for it's Thine own
It is Thy plan, my heart to rule.

Verse 6
Worldly pleasure, riches, honour
Other things the world can afford
I loathe its ensnaring deceits
Christ only will my heart worship.

Verse 7
Thou, only Thou I choose to love
From the very depths of my heart
What other joy surpasses this
That Thou accepts me as Thine own.

Verse 8
There's naught I desire or long for
But that Thy love take possession
This, only this, my earnest plea
All other things I count as dung.
