I Come to Thee with Quiet Mind

Psalm 46:10

O Love, revealed on earth in Christ,

In blindness once I sacrificed

Thy gifts for dross; I could not see,

But Jesus brings me sight of Thee.

I come to Thee with quiet mind,

Thyself to know, Thy will to find;

In Jesus’ steps my steps must be,

I follow Him to follow Thee.

O Love, invisible before,

I see Thee now, desire Thee more;

When Jesus speaks Thy word is clear;

I search His face and find Thee near.

O Love, forever claim my eyes!

Thy beauty be my chosen prize;

I cast my load on timeless grace

That my free soul may run the race.

Catherine Baird, The Salvation Army Songbook
