More of our heart

1
More of our heart, dear Lord, we’d give You now;
Even more ground to You, Lord, we’d allow.
All that distracts us we’d despise,
All that draws away our eyes—
Lord, do fill our vision
’Til the morning star has risen!
We would count all things loss, but Jesus gain;
Our inward parts cry out for You to reign.
Worthy You are our heart to claim—
Come, engrave on us Your name,
We would love You, Jesus, more.
2
Less we would argue, Lord, and go our way;
More we would say “Amen” to what You say.
Grant us a walk to You conformed,
’Til our living is transformed.
We adore You, Jesus—
May a pure love for You seize us.
Any unwillingness, Lord, quickly slay;
Even by faith we open all the way—
Rising to heights of love unknown,
Christ our destiny alone,
We would love You, Jesus, more!

I recommend this song because I have had more experience with this song than any other. (1) When I was in college in Massachusetts I used to visit a brother's house on the weekend. One weekend I couldn't sleep. I thought of this song and wanted to sing it. I went down to the living room, found this song, and sang it. After three times I had to stop and pray. From then on I knew this song. Other songs I have sang much more and never learned, but this song touched me. (2) One time I was singing this song while waiting for a ride to the meeting. I couldn't remember one part of the song. I prayed for the Lord to give me the part I forgot. The brother who showed up to give me a ride was singing this song. The only part he remembered was the part I forgot. (3) Years later I was living in Seattle. Again I forgot part of this song. We didn't sing it there. I prayed Lord give me that song back. I thought I would have to write to Boston to get it. Instead I found in the church bookroom a collection of songs from a church in Texas. It contained this song. With this song collection I would never forget this song again.

I recommend this song. The Lord restored it to me twice.
