Complete in Thee! no work of mine

Complete in Thee! no work of mine
May take, dear Lord, the place of Thine;
Thy blood hath pardon bought for me,
And I am now complete in Thee.
  Yea, justified! O blessed thought!
And sanctified! Salvation wrought!
Thy blood hath pardon bought for me,
  And glorified, I too, shall be!
Complete in Thee—no more shall sin,
Thy grace hath conquered, reign within;
Thy voice shall bid the tempter flee,
And I shall stand complete in Thee.
Complete in Thee—each want supplied,
And no good thing to me denied;
Since Thou my portion, Lord, wilt be,
I ask no more, complete in Thee.
Dear Savior! when before Thy bar
All tribes and tongues assembled are,
Among Thy chosen will I be,
At Thy right hand—complete in Thee.

This hymn that says so much was brought to mind while reading Oswald Chambers this morning. He was writing about self-consciousness. "It is never God's will that we should be anything less than complete in Him. Anything that disturbs rest in him must be cured at once and it is not cured by being a ignored, but by coming to Jesus Christ."

Or, as my friend Marguerite says, "Back to Jesus"

Our choir's barbershop quartet sang this song at our concert. I LOVE it. They make it sound so amazing, a capella and all.

You changed quite a few words and it threw off the entire congregation.

This song brings me to tears when I think of what Christ did for me on the Cross of Calvary.

I long for the day when I shall stand Complete in HIM.

An older man at my home church always chose this. I love the tempo and the time to hear the words.

I just came home from teaching my Sunday School class a lesson in 11Corint. chap.10. I was sad when no one knew this beautiful old hymn when I mentioned it. I wanted them to have these words. I thought I would try the internet and there it was on your website!With music! Thank you! I have made copies and they will have the words this week.

It's a commentary on the book of Colossians, very much in line with the truths that are emphasized; so refreshing in contrast to all our emphasis on "man's response" in the music today.

a favorite of mine for some time, because it tells it all.
