O the bitter shame and sorrow!
That a time could ever be
When I let the Saviour's pity
Plead in vain; and proudly answered,
All of self, and none of Thee!

Yet He found me: I beheld Him
Bleeding on the accursed tree:
Heard Him pray: Forgive them, Father!
And my wistful heart said faintly,
Some of self, and some of Thee!

Day by day His tender mercy,
Healing, helping, full and free:
Sweet and strong, and ah! so patient,
Brought me lower, while I whispered,
Less of self, and more of Thee!

Higher than the highest heaven,
Deeper than the deepest sea,
Lord, Thy love at last hath conquered,
Grant me now my supplication -
None of self, and all of Thee!
