Philip Bliss’s Prayer

Philip Bliss (1838-1876)

More holiness give me,
More strivings within;
More patience in suff’ring,
More sorrow for sin;
More faith in my Saviour,
More sense of His care.
More joy in His service,
More purpose in prayer.

More gratitude give me,
More trust in the Lord;
More zeal for His glory,
More hope in His word;
More tears for His sorrows,
More pain at His grief;
More meekness in trial,
More praise for relief.

More purity give me,
More strength to o’ercome;
More freedom from earth-stains,
More longings for home;
More fit for the kingdom,
More used would I be;
More blessèd and holy,
More, Saviour, like Thee.
