(1) You are my most excellent portion!
On You I will forever lay hold.
The excellency of Your Person,
Lord, my eyes will most gladly behold!
The world, its lust, I willingly leave.
But, no, oh no! I will never weep!
Trash, refuse, that’s what they are!
From me, oh, they better stay afar.
My life of ease I now count as loss,
You I will acquire at all cost!
I made the best choice when I said, “I love You!
Lord, You’re my treasure of great value!
Now all things are absolutely nothing,
Because to me, You are my everything!
My future, my life, no longer my own,
All I present for Your recovery.
Until the age’s consummation,
Full-time, lifetime, I will serve You!”
(2) Lord, now my eyes clearly see Your need,
My desire to serve is burning indeed!
To be perfected, to be trained by You,
This desire in me so strong, so true.
Not just for enjoyment that I am here,
For discipline, intense breaking, too.
With vision clear, with You so near,
O my Lord, oh, until death ensue!
I will remain though others treat me sore,
I dare not from You ask for more!
(3) Lord, I to Your demand say “Amen!”
Though my shameful weakness is exposed.
I learned to put myself now to an end,
In my ugly self no more I boast.
I am not a fool, all good things I’ve known,
Yet why am I still here pressing on?
Though I myself cannot apprehend,
On You I will rest, rely, depend.
Will not from You my heart ever sever,
Yesterday, today, forever!
