Surrender

O Thou of whom I am the instrument,

O secret Spirit and Nature housed in me,

Let all my mortal being now be blent

In Thy still glory of divinity.

I have given my mind to be dug Thy channel mind,

I have offered up my will to be Thy will:

Let nothing of myself be left behind

In our union mystic and unutterable.

My heart shall throb with the world-beats of Thy love,

My body become Thy engine for earth-use;

In my nerves and veins Thy rapture’s streams shall move;

My thoughts shall be hounds of Light for Thy power to loose.

Keep1 only my soul to adore eternally

And meet Thee in each form and soul of Thee.
