How I Praise Thee, Precious Savior (a.k.a. Channels Only)

Mary E. Maxwell
(1837-1915)

How I praise Thee, precious Savior,
That Thy love laid hold of me!
Thou hast saved and cleansed and filled me
That I might Thy channel be.

Chorus:
Channels only, blessèd Master,
But with all Thy wondrous power
Flowing through us, Thou canst use us
Every day and every hour.

Just a channel full of blessing
To the thirsty hearts around,
To tell out Thy full salvation,
All Thy loving message sound.

Emptied that Thou shouldest fill me,
A clean vessel in Thy hand;
With no power but as Thou givest
Graciously with each command.

Witnessing Thy power to save me,
Setting free from self and sin;
Thou who boughtest to possess me,
In Thy fullness, Lord, come in.

Jesus, fill now with Thy Spirit
Hearts that full surrender know;
That the streams of living water
From our inner man may flow.
