Quips and Quotes
"We do not earn or merit anything by taking refuge in God. Hiding in something makes no contribution to the hiding place. All it does is show that we regard ourselves as helpless and the hiding place as a place of rescue." John Piper

Thy Slave and Not My Own

I have not loved Thee deeply, Lord
I am still too much my own.
I say, “Thy will be mine, O God",
But when duty calls, I groan.

To be real, sincere, devoted, Lord,
To Thee and Thee alone;
To be in deed, not merely words,
Thy slave, myself dethroned.

O Savior, Thou hast loved me so;
For me Thou didst atone.
Why do I pamper silken self?
King, have Thy rightful throne!

Help me, O God, to crucify,
No selfishness condone;
The King of Kings died for hell’s slaves
Such love must be made known.

So through me, O my God, I pray
May Thy sweet love be shown.
I long to love Thee deep, my King,
Thy slave and not my own.


I'd love to hear from you!
