1. How I praise Thee, precious Savior,
      That Thy love laid hold of me;
    Thou hast saved and cleansed and filled me,
      That I might Thy channel be.
    • Channels only, blessed Master,
        But with all Thy wondrous grace,
      Flowing through us, Thou canst use us
          Every hour in every place.
  2. Just a channel, full of blessing,
      To the thirsty hearts around;
    To tell out Thy full salvation,
      All Thy loving message sound.
  3. Emptied that Thou shouldest fill me,
      A clean vessel in Thine hand;
    With no strength but as Thou givest
      Graciously with each command.
  4. Witnessing Thy grace to save me,
      Setting free from self and sin;
    Thou hast bought me to possess me,
      In Thy fulness, Lord, come in.
  5. O Lord, fill now with Thy Spirit
      Hearts that full surrender know;
    That the streams of living water
      From our inner man may flow.
