O Jesus move us on,
To keep in step with You;
That with Your will, we be one,
Anoint with heaven’s dew.
O Jesus move us in,
Into Your heart and mind;
Your love to flow so deep within,
Our thoughts with Yours to blend.
O Jesus move us up,
To reach that heavenly plain;
Above this world and all its tripe,
A mind like Yours to gain.
O Jesus move us out,
To do the works You’d do;
To heal and save and make our mark,
In all things honour You.
O Jesus move us down,
As low as men can get;
Self on the cross to win the crown,
And gain Your sweet assent.
(Tune: Carlisle; Trentham; Dennis; SM)
