Sunlight through the trees

I‘d never heard this song until a few months ago when my son selected it during the song service at church. The words touched me and I hope they bless your Sunday.

More Holiness Give Me

More holiness give me,
More strivings within;
More patience in suff’ring,
More sorrow for sin;
More faith in my Savior,
More sense of His care;
More joy in His service,
More purpose in prayer.

More gratitude give me,
More trust in the Lord;
More pride in His glory,
More hope in His Word;
More tears for His sorrows,
More pain at His grief,
More meekness in trial,
More praise for relief.

More purity give me,
More strength to o’ercome;
More freedom from earthstains,
More longings for home;
More fit for the kingdom,
More useful I’d be;
More blessed and holy,
More, Savior, like Thee.
~P. P. Bliss 1838-1876
