174. O Patient, Spotless One

S.M.
1
O patient, spotless One!
 
Our hearts in meekness train,
 
To bear Thy yoke, and learn of Thee,
 
That we may rest obtain.
Hebrews 9:14; 1 Peter 1:19; Matthew 11:29
2
Jesus! Thou art enough
 
The mind and heart to fill;
 
Thy patient life—to calm the soul;
 
Thy love—its fear dispel.
Psalm 36:8; Psalm 65:4; Psalm 107:9; 1 John 4:18
3
Oh fix our earnest gaze
 
So wholly, Lord, on Thee,
 
That, with Thy beauty occupied,
 
We elsewhere none may see.
2 Corinthians 3:18; Song of Solomon 5:10,16; Matthew 17:8

“Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.” (Matthew 11:29)
