Live Out Thy Life Within Me


Live out Thy life within me, O Jesus, King of kings!
Be Thou Thyself the answer to all my questionings;
Live out Thy life within me, in all things have Thy way!
I, the transparent medium, Thy glory to display.

The temple has been yielded, and purified of sin,
Let Thy Shekinah glory now shine forth from within,
And all the earth keep silence, the body henceforth be
Thy silent, gentle servant, moved only as by Thee.

Its members every moment held subject to Thy call,
Ready to have Thee use them, or not be used at all,
Held without restless longing, or strain, or stress, or fret,
Or chafings at Thy dealings, or thoughts of vain regret.

But restful, calm and pliant, from bend and bias free,
Awaiting Thy decision, when Thou hast need of me.
Live out Thy life within me, O Jesus, King of kings!
Be Thou the glorious answer to all my questionings.

  1. I really really like these words but I don’t think I know the song. What page is it on in the Worship Book? Oh! Did you see the song on my blog? You might already know it but it was a new song for me and I just love it! I don’t remember what they call it but it’s WB page 327. It’s amazing! Oh! And guess what? I’m going on a mission trip! Don’t you just love all this snow!!

  2. Hello Serena,

    I’m not familiar with the Mennonite worship book… different churches use different books for worship (often referred to as hymnals) and some don’t even use books- they just project the words on a big screen in front of the church. Your worship book probably has an index of songs, so you should be able to look it up there. It is to the tune of Aurelia, which is the same tune to which we sing “The Church’s one Foundation”. I’m glad you’re going on a missions trip. You will probably never be the same when you come back.
