    Second-Place Hymn

    Fervently

    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
