1 Oh, not to fill the mouth of fame
My longing soul is stirred;
Oh, give me a diviner name!
Call me thy servant, Lord!
2 No longer would my soul be known
As uncontrolled and free;
Oh, not mine own, oh, not mine own!
Lord, I belong to thee!
3 Thy servant, me thy servant choose;
Naught of thy claim abate!
The glorious name I would not lose,
Nor change the sweet estate.
4 In life, in death, on earth, in heaven,
This is the name for me!
The same sweet style and title given
Through all eternity.
