"Not I, But Christ" 

"Not I, but Christ" be honored, loved, exalted;
"Not I, but Christ" be seen, be known, be heard;
"Not I, but Christ" in every look and action,
"Not I, but Christ" in every thought and word.

"Not I, but Christ" to gently soothe in sorrow,
"Not I, but Christ" to wipe the falling tear:
"Not I, but Christ" to lift the weary burden;
"Not I, but Christ" to hush away all fear.

"Not I, but Christ" in lowly, silent labor;
"Not I, but Christ" in humble, earnest toil:
Christ, only Christ! no show, no ostentation;
Christ, none but Christ, the gatherer of the spoil.

Christ, only Christ, ere long will fill my vision;
Glory excelling soon, full soon Ill see
Christ, only Christ, my every wish fulfilling,
Christ, only Christ, my All in All to be.
