1My dear Redeemer and my Lord,
I read my duty in Thy word;
But in Thy life the law appears
Drawn out in living characters.
2Such was Thy truth, and such Thy zeal,
Such deference to Thy Father’s will,
Such love, and meekness so divine,
I would transcribe and make them mine.
3Cold mountains and the midnight air
Witnessed the fervor of Thy prayer:
The desert Thy temptation knew,
Thy conflict and Thy victory too.
4Be Thou my pattern; make me bear
More of Thy gracious image here;
Then God the Judge shall own my name
Amongst the followers of the Lamb.
