The Prayer of a D.C.D.
Lord Jesus, King of Calvary!
Conqueror of the grave!
Forgive me, cleanse me, save me, Lord!
Enrol me as Thy slave.
|O Holy Ghost, inflame my heart,
Then pierce and make it whole:
Crucify each base desire,
And resurrect my soul.
|Had I the choice of life of death,
I’d rather die than live;
How else can I reveal my love,
I’ve buy my life to give.
|Lord Jesus Christ, dwell in my heart,
Yea, occupy the whole;
E’er since I knew Thy mighty love
Fierce passion fills my soul.
|And yet I dread to die, for death
Must part me from the Cross.
But there my heart is nailed to Thine;
Such life is love, not loss.
|Lord! Lover! Who didst die for me.
I live when Then I see;
For Thee I die to all the world,
Yet live triumphantly.
|Hence would I live eternally
On earth, yet daily die:
For only daily death for Thee
My soul can satisfy.
|Lord, clothe me in Thy blood stained robe—
Soft raiment I abhor:
Pain or death shall only make
My passion rage the more.
|They one time called me H.A.M. . . .
But now I’m D.C.D.,
Which means I’m dead to all the world,
And only live to Thee.
|I cannot live without Thee, Lord,
In Thee I must abide;
How can I crucify my heard
And dies a From every earthly tie;
And "C" means Christ, my King of Love,
For Whom I’ll live and die.
|Behold me prostrate at Thy feet!
Lord, may I bear Thy name?
Then must Thou hide me in Thy heart
Lest I should cause Thee shame.
|With Him I death and Hell defy,
And fight to die and win,
To spread thro’ all the earth His Name,
And dam the curse of sin.
Tune:"Jesus, Thine All-Victorious Love."
