Lord, Thou art our consecration

1
Lord, Thou art our consecration,
  Thou the consecrated One;
Thou hast satisfied the Father—
  Consecration thus was done.
When on earth Thou hadst no pleasure,
  Save to do the Father’s will;
Now Thou livest here within us,
  Consecration to fulfill.
2
Lord, we praise Thee for the picture:
  Consecration’s ram we see,
Burnt for God’s full satisfaction,
  Eaten and enjoyed to be.
Thou art now our ram, Lord Jesus,
  Offered for the will of God;
By Thy consecration, faultless,
  We may walk where Thou hast trod.
3
As we eat Thyself, Lord Jesus,
  Consecrated we become;
By Thy wondrous life within us,
  Thy obedience is our own.
No more need we strive and struggle,
  Consecrated try to be;
Consecration dwells within us—
  Now our part to eat of Thee.
4
Lord, we praise Thee, consecration
  Is nought else but Thee as food:
As we eat Thee and enjoy Thee,
  We are all made one with God;
One in will and one in purpose
  We become by eating Thee:
As we take and eat Thyself, Lord,
  Consecrated we will be.

The more we desire to be consecrated, the more we realise there is no way we can be.

Our hope is in this line: "Consecration dwells within us—Now our part, to eat of Thee"
