I want that adorning divine

I want that adorning divine,
  Thou only, my Lord, canst bestow;
I want in those beautiful garments to shine,
  Which mark out Thy beauty below.
I want every moment to feel
  Thy Spirit indwelling my heart,
His pow’r ever present to cleanse and to heal,
  And newness of life to impart.
I want, oh, I want to attain
  Some likeness, my Savior, to Thee;
That longed-for resemblance once more to regain;
  Thy comeliness put upon me.
I want to be marked for Thine own,
  Thy seal on my forehead to wear;
And have that new name on the mystic white stone,
  Which none but Thyself can declare.
I want, and this sums up my prayer,
  To glorify Thee till I die;
Then calmly to yield up my soul to Thy care,
  And breathe out in faith my last sigh!

I like this hymn! "I want, I want!"

I'm sure the Lord is happy when we come to Him and tell Him what we want.

" I want, Lord, every moment to feel Your Spirit indwelling my heart,

Your power ever present to cleanse and to heal, and newness of life to impart!"

Wow! how the Holy Spirit works in our hearts to create such prayers that we knew not were put to music.
