Christ my Life

Precious Seed

Lord, Let me see Thy glory,
That like Thee I may grow;
Transformed to Thy blessed image,
While I am here below.
Like Thee alone, blessed Saviour,
‘Tis my desire to be;
To share the joys and sorrows,
United now to Thee.
No strength have I to follow
Thy holy pathway, Lord;
Except Thy hand uphold me,
According to Thy word.
O Lord, be this my portion:
To show Thy glory forth,
And in Thy love abiding,
To tread Thy path on earth.
Now earthly fame despising,
Thine own reproach to bear,
Till, at Thy bright appearing,
Thy triumph I shall share!
