It is not by struggling

It is not by struggling,
  But by yielding all,
I may rest from labor,
  All my burden fall.
It is not resolving,
  But Thyself to heed,
I’m from sin delivered
  And from bondage freed.
It is not by letter,
  But by Spirit ’tis,
I will be approved,
  Share Thy life of bliss.
It is not man’s teaching,
  But anointing Thine,
Which imparts Thy light and
  Fellowship divine.
It is not resolving
  Now to run the race,
But ’tis by Thy mercy
  I receive Thy grace.
It is not by knowledge,
  But by grace alone,
I can pass thru suff’ring
  To Thine image grown.
Not by lofty phrases,
  But by power Thine,
I the lost can pilot
  Unto life divine.
It is not my wisdom,
  But Thy Spirit, Lord,
Which alone can fit me
  To fulfill Thy Word.
