SS&S 576: I WANT THE ADORNING DIVINE

SS&S 576: I WANT THE ADORNING DIVINE

1. I want the adorning Divine,

Thou only, my God, canst bestow;

I want in those beautiful garments to shine,

Which distinguish Thy household below.

I want every moment to feel

That Thy Spirit resides in my heart,

That His power is present to cleanse and to heal,

And newness of life to impart.

 

2. I want, oh, I want to attain

Some likeness, my Saviour, to Thee!

That longed-for resemblance once

more to regain----

Thy comeliness put upon me!

I want to be marked for Thine own,

Thy seal on my forehead to wear;

To receive that "new name" on the

mystic white stone,

Which none but Thyself can declare.

 

3. I want as a traveller to haste

Straight onward, nor pause on my way;

Nor forethought, nor anxious contrivance to waste

On the tent only pitched for a day.

I want, and this sums up my prayer,

To glorify Thee till I die;

Then calmly to yield up my soul to

Thy care,

And breathe out, in faith, my last sigh.
