1. Oh, the bitter shame and sorrow,

That a time could ever be,

When I let the Saviour’s pity

Plead in vain, and proudly answered,

“All of self, and none of Thee!”

2. Yet He found me; I behold Him

Bleeding on the accursed tree,

Heard Him pray, “Forgive them, Father!”

And my wistful heart said faintly-

“Some of self, and some Thee.”

3. Day by day His tender mercy,

Healing, helping, full, and free,

Sweet and strong, and, ah! So patient,

Brought me lower; while I whispered,

“Less of self, and more of Thee.”

4. Higher than the highest heavens,

Deeper than the deepest sea,

Lord, Thy love at last has conquered;

Grant me now my supplication-

“None of self, and all of Thee.”

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
