 1.  Search me, O God, and know my heart today;
     Try me, O Savior, know my thoughts, I pray.
     See if there be some wicked way in me;
     cleanse me from ev'ry sin, and set me free.

 2.  I praise Thee, Lord, for cleansing me from sin;
     Fulfill Thy word and make me pure within.
     Fill me with fire, where once I burned with shame;
     Grant my desire to magnify Thy name.

 3.  Lord, take my life, and make it wholly Thine;
     Fill my poor heart with Thy great love divine.
     Take all my will, my passion, self and pride;
     I now surrender, Lord; in me abide.
