Lord, purify my heart to love
May all its thoughts be Thine,
In solitude of fellowship
Teach me to seek until I find
Teach me to knock until the vault
Is opened, where, earth’s treasures hid
Are offered up, until no more
I guard the painted dead.
My empty heart then take, Oh Lord,
Make it Thy dwelling, enter in,
A temple and a sacrifice,
Thy fire for every sin
Consuming my desires, Oh Lord,
Till all my thoughts be still and be
The peace of God, of those
Forgiven and pure
Who look on Thee.
Lord, satisfy my heart with love,
Teach me this prayer in every plea;
Gift of all gifts I seek above,
Lord, satisfy my heart with Thee.
