Oh, make me, Jesus, Saviour - With the Lowly is Wisdom
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

With the Lowly is Wisdom.

1. Oh, make me, Jesus, Saviour,
  more apt in pleasing thee;
guard thou my whole behaviour,
that, walking in thy favour,
  thy will my way may be.

2. Thou seest, Lord, how slowly,
  e’en of thyself I learn;
oh! Saviour, meek and lowly,
when shall I know thee wholly,
  and cease aside to turn?

3. Oh! for a closer cleaving,
  Lord Jesus, to thy side
all other counsels leaving,
self-will and its deceiving,
  vain thoughts and subtle pride.

4. Lord Jesus, be thou ever
  alone before my sight:
ties nature weaves may sever;
the bands of love – no, never!
  wrought, as they are, in light.

5. Oh give me grace to ponder
  thy perfect, patient ways!
It wearies me to wander –
direct my footsteps yonder,
  where all is love and praise!

Hannah K. Burlingham, Wayside Songs, 1901, 175-176.
