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.
