Here you will find the Poem Desiring to Be Given up to God of poet Augustus Montague Toplady
That my heart was right with thee, And lov'd thee with a perfect love! O that my Lord would dwell in me, And never from his seat remove! Jesus, remove th' impending load, And set my soul on fire for God! Thou seest I dwell in awful night Until thou in my heart appear; Kindle the flame, O Lord, and light Thine everlasting candle there: Thy presence puts the shadows by; If thou art gone, how dark am I! Ah! Lord, how should thy servant see, Unless thou give me seeing eyes? Well may I fall, if out of thee; If out of thee, how should I rise? I wander, Lord, without thy aid, And lose my way in midnight's shade. Thy bright, unerring light afford, A light that gives the sinner hope; And from the house of bondage, Lord, O bring the weary captive up, Thine hand alone can set me free And reach my pardon out to me. O let my prayer acceptance find, And bring the mighty blessing down; With eye-salve, Lord, anoint the blind, And seal me thine adopted son: A fallen, helpless creature take, And heir of thy salvation make.
