Methodist Hymnal (1876)
1 THOUGH God in Christ reveal
Our sins through faith removed,
We lose the talent we conceal,
The blessing unimproved;
Not labouring after more
Abundant righteousness,
Stripped of our former peace and power.
We forfeit all our grace.

2 Lord, if thy grace I have,
I plead thy word for more:
Whom thou hast saved, persist to save,
And all thy life restore:
If with a faithful heart
I simply follow thee,
Whate'er thou hast, whate'er thou art,
Thou art, and hast for me.
