May I fear You greater than
I fear man, I fear man.
May my love for You be measured
By obedience, by repentance.
And in that moment humbly bow –
Teach my heart, show me how
To fear you more my Lord, my God!
Faithful Friend, greatest End.
May I want You greater than
Earthly things, worldly things.
May I find my greatest treasure
Hid in You, bound in You.
And in that moment sell my all
Gladly trade all I own
All to gain the priceless pearl!
Truest Friend, greatest End.
May I love You greater than
My own will, my own will.
May I seek my greatest pleasure
From your hand, from Your hand.
And in that moment lift my eyes
To the cross, up to Christ
Die to self and gain Your life
Savior friend, greatest End
