Channels Only

How I praise Thee, precious Savior, that Thy love laid hold of me; Tho hast saved and cleansed and filled me That I might Thy channel be.

Emptied that Thou shouldest fill me, A clean vessel in Thy hand; With no power but as Thou givest graciously with each command.

Witnessing Thy power to save me, setting free from self and sin; Thou who bought be to possess me, in Thy fullness Lord, come in.

Jesus, fill now with Thy Spirit hearts that full surrender know' That the streams of living water from our inner man may flow.

Channels only, blessed Master, But with all Thy wondrous power. Flowing though us, Thou canst use us everyday and every hour.

I love this hymn! There's another verse that the Steve Pettit Team wrote and is on their CD, "Weep No More" I think. Thanks for sharing!! ~ Ruth Ann
