     1 In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and saith unto them, 2 I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat: 3 And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way: for divers of them came from far. 4 And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness? 5 And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven. 6 And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before them; and they did set them before the people. 7 And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before them. 8 So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets. 9 And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away.(KJV)

1. Jesus, Jesus, only Jesus, 
Can my heartfelt longing still. 
Lo, I pledge myself to Jesus 
What He wills alone to will. 
For my heart, which He hath filled, 
Ever cries, Lord, as Thou wilt. 

2. One there is for whom I’m living, 
Whom I love most tenderly; 
Unto Jesus I am giving 
What in love He gave to me. 
Jesus’ blood hides all my guilt; 
Lord, oh, lead me as Thou wilt. 

3. What to me may seem a treasure, 
But displeasing is to Thee, 
Oh, remove such harmful pleasure; 
Give instead what profits me. 
Let my heart by Thee be stilled. 
Make me Thine, Lord, as Thou wilt. 

4. Let me earnestly endeavor 
Thy good pleasure to fulfil; 
In me, through me, with me ever, 
Lord, accomplish Thou Thy will. 
In Thy holy image built, 
Let me die, Lord, as Thou wilt. 

5. Jesus, constant be my praises, 
For Thou unto me didst bring 
Thine own self and all Thy graces 
That I joyfully may sing: 
Be it unto me, my Shield, 
As Thou wilt, Lord, as Thou wilt.
