A Willing Captive

By: Rev. Ronald F.T. Burston

Make me a willing captive,
Lord of Thee,
Come inhabit my entire being.
Write loyal lines of love upon my heart,
And help me sing them in the dead of night
To make the hills reverberate with heavenly joy,
And cause the music of the
Whispering breeze to call out--Jesus!

O may the whole world ring out
with anthem true,
The brooks, the rivers, rills and
lakes, bubble with exploding praise,
To Thee Emanuel--"God with us"--
Hope of Eternal Glory,
Come, Holy Spirit, cause all to
Magnify and cry out--Jesus!
