Inspired by: Exodus 21:5-6
Verse 1 My glorious Victor, Prince Divine, Clasp these surrendered hands in Thine; At length my will is all Thine own, Glad vassal of a Savior’s throne, Glad vassal of a Savior’s throne.
Verse 2 My Master lead me to Thy door, And pierce this willing ear once more; Thy bonds are freedom, let me stay With Thee to toil, endure, obey, With Thee to toil, endure, obey.
Chorus I am Your servant forever, and here I will remain. I am Your servant forever; freely I come, and freely stay.
Verse 3 Yes, ear and hand, and thought and will, Use all in Thy dear slav’ry still! Self’s weary liberties I cast Beneath Thy feet, there keep them fast; Beneath Thy feet, there keep them fast.
Verse 4 Tread them still down, and then I know, These hands shall with Thy gifts o’erflow, And piercéd ears shall hear the tone Which tells me Thou and I are one, Which tells me Thou and I are one.
