#160: Channels Only

Standard

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

1

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.

CHORUS

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.

2

Emptied that Thou shouldst fill  me,

A clean vessel in Thy hand,

With no pow’r but as thou givest

Graciously with each command.

CHORUS

3

Witnessing Thy pow’r to save me,

Setting free from self and sin,

Thou who boughtest to possess me,

Thy fullness, Lord, come in.

CHORUS

4

Jesus, fill now with Thy Spirit

Hearts that full surrender know,

That the streams of living water

From our inner man may flow.

CHORUS
