Conclusion

Make me, O Lord, a child again,
So tender, frail and small,
In self possessing nothing, and
In Thee possessing all.

O Savior, make me small once more,
That downward I may grow,
And in this heart of mine restore
The faith of long ago.

With Thee may I be crucified –
No longer I that lives –
O Savior, crush my sinful pride
By grace which pardon gives.

Make me, O Lord, a child again,
Obedient to Thy call,
In self-possessing nothing, and
In Thee possessing all.
