O Jesus Christ, grow Thou in me

1
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.
2
In Thy bright beams which on me fall,
  Fade every evil thought;
That I am nothing, Thou art all,
  I would be daily taught.
3
More of Thy glory let me see,
  Thou Holy, Wise, and True;
I would Thy living image be,
  In joy and sorrow too.
4
Fill me with gladness from above,
  Hold me by strength divine;
Lord, let the glow of Thy great love
  Through all my being shine.
5
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.

“The birth of Isaac was the coming of Jehovah, which was the coming of grace (cf. John 1:17). Isaac was born by the strength of God’s grace, not by the strength of man’s natural life. This took place after Abraham had been circumcised and he and his wife, Sarah, had become completely deadened (Gen. 18:11; Rom. 4:18-19), signifying that the time of life, the time when Christ will be life to us, will come after our natural strength has been terminated. (Gen. 18:14, footnote 1)”

This hymn expresses my desire to grow in The Lord Jesus and to enjoy Him regardless of my feelings and circumstances. Lord I pray that for the sake of Your testimony You will increase in me and I may decrease. Oh Lord Jesus grow in me.. I love You, Lord.

What a hope of glory that I as You might be Lord!

Lord Jesus I love You!

More of Thy glory let me see,

Thou Holy, Wise, and True;

In joy and sorrow too.

As I was sighing to the Lord asking Him to help me in my weakness, this song just came to me. Singing this song caused me to gain strength and go on with the Lord. ”Lord, thank You for Your all sufficient grace and for embracing my weaknesses. Be my life and aim. Lord, let me decrease and may You continually grow in me each day."

Every time I feel weak, I love to sing this song. It supplies me a lot. Just by singing this it seems that you are praying, "Oh Lord Jesus Christ grow in me. Fill me with gladness from above. I am nothing, You are my all. Be Thou my life and aim."
