Lord Take Away
by Hezekiah Butterworth


By all that I to others owe,
By all I hope to prove,
By all that other lives bestow
On mine, of hope and love,
By all my influence, day by day,
Whose end I cannot see,
Lord, take, forever take away,
My wrong desires from me!

By what I owe a mother's love,
By what a father's care,
By all to honor I would prove,
And all for virtue bear,
From lapse from good,
from passion's sway,
Oh, keep my spirit free,
And take, forever take away.
My wrong desires from me!

By all the magnitude of loss
To those who fail and fall,
By all I owe my Saviour's cross
To which for help I call;
By all I owe to souls astray
Thy would direction see,
Oh, Lord, forever take away,
My wrong desires from me!
