O Jesus Christ, grow Thou in me

O Jesus Christ, grow Thou in me,
  And all things else recede;
My heart be daily nearer Thee,
  From sin be daily freed.
  Each day let Thy supporting might
  My weakness still embrace;
My darkness vanish in Thy light,
    Thy life my death efface.
In Thy bright beams which on me fall,
  Fade every evil thought;
That I am nothing, Thou art all,
  I would be daily taught.
More of Thy glory let me see,
  Thou Holy, Wise, and True;
I would Thy living image be,
  In joy and sorrow too.
Fill me with gladness from above,
  Hold me by strength divine;
Lord, let the glow of Thy great love
  Through all my being shine.
Make this poor self grow less and less,
  Be Thou my life and aim;
Oh, make me daily through Thy grace
  More meet to bear Thy name.
Amos Kimani

Naivasha, Nakuru, Kenya

Jesus grow within me and let my self grow less is my daily prayer. And we grow in Him by eating Jesus daily. It is not by doctrines or knowledge but by eating Jesus. Saints let embrace Jesus in our life daily.

This is a wonderful hymn. We need to allow Jesus Christ to grow in us. Let all us recede. It has been my daily prayer and am being transformed day after day. My daily life I must involve Jesus Christ in everything. Churches in Kenya greet all the saints in other localities in the World.

This is really my need. "Fill me with gladness from above, Hold me by strength divine, Lord, let the glow of Thy great love, Through all my being shine."

The Lord is knocking, if we open He comes in to make HIs home, but this Gentlemen will seek our cooperation with every alternation to our heart, with ever door within the heart. May we "let the glow of Thy great love" melt us so His every desire becomes ours as well.
