Christ My Song - 569
I place an offering at thy shrine - The perfect sacrifice
(Madame Guyon/William Cowper/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
The perfect sacrifice.
2. I yield thee back thy gifts again,
thy gifts which most I prize;
desirous only to retain
the notice of thine eyes.
3. But if, by thine adored decree,
that blessing be denied,
resigned and unreluctant, see
my every wish subside.
4. Thy will in all things I approve,
exalted or cast down;
thy will in every state I love,
and even in thy frown.
