More holiness give me

Sometimes the battle for right and wrong heats up and it becomes blatantly obvious where to be. Other times it is so subtle that a mere distraction could derail you from your course. At times like this I love the words of the Hymn "More holiness give me"

More holiness give me,
More sweetness within,
More patience in suff'ring,
More sorrow for sin,
More faith in my Savior,
More sense of his care,
More joy in His service,
More freedom in prayer.

More gratitude give me,
More trust in the Lord,
More zeal for His glory,
More hope in His Word,
More tears for His sorrows,
more pain at His grief,
More meekness in trial,
More praise for relief.

More victory give me,
More strength to o'ercome,
More freedom from earth-stains,
More quest for the throne,
More fit for the kingdom,
More useful I'd be,
More blessed and holy,
More, Savior, like Thee.

Just a minor set of goals...
