An Instrument in Thy Hands


Fervently
Second-Place Hymn
1. As Alma yearned in ancient days,
I, too, desire to be
An instrument in thy hands, O Lord,
In bringing souls to thee.
Chorus
An instrument in thy hands, O Lord!
A tool of strength and worth.
An instrument in thy hands, O Lord!
In building thy kingdom on earth.
2. So purge, refine, and purify,
And tame my willful heart
That I may be fit to serve thee well,
And sacred truths impart.
Chorus
3. And may thy Spirit’s holy power
Be always close to me.
May thy work be my work ev’ry hour
In bringing souls to thee.
Chorus
