#160: Channels Only


(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


How I praise Thee, precious Savior,

That Thy love laid hold of me;

Thou hast saved and cleansed and filled me

That I might Thy channel be.


Channels only, blessed Master —

But with all thy wondrous pow’r

Flowing thru us, Thou canst use us

Ev’ry day and ev’ry hour.


Emptied that Thou shouldst fill  me,

A clean vessel in Thy hand,

With no pow’r but as thou givest

Graciously with each command.



Witnessing Thy pow’r to save me,

Setting free from self and sin,

Thou who boughtest to possess me,

Thy fullness, Lord, come in.



Jesus, fill now with Thy Spirit

Hearts that full surrender know,

That the streams of living water

From our inner man may flow.
