Lord, I pray that I may know Thee,
Risen One, enthroned on high;
Empty hands I’m stretching to Thee,
Show Thyself to me, I cry.
Show Thyself to me, show Thyself to me,
That I may reveal Thy beauty;
Show Thyself to me.
All that once I thought most worthy,
All of which I once did boast,
In Thy light seems poor and passing,
’tis Thyself I covet most.
Give Thyself to me, give Thyself to me,
That I may show forth Thy power;
Give Thyself to me.
Only as I truly know Thee
Can I make Thee truly known;
Only bring the power to others
Which in my own life is shown.
Show Thy power in me, show Thy power in me,
That I may be used for others;
Show Thy power in me.
Ruth Tracy, The Salvation Army Song Book
