THE MASTER, by SAMUEL DOWSE ROBBINS
First Line: Thou art our master!
Last Line: Our servant be!
Subject(s): Jesus Christ
Thou art our Master! Thou of God the Son,
Of man the friend;
By Thee alone the victory is won:
Our souls defend!
Thou art the Master! let us love Thy word:
Now from Thy starry throne look gently down,
With us abide!
Thou art our Master! through the narrow way
Thou once didst tread,
Lead Thy disciples upward to the day!
Thou living Head!
Thou art our Master! at Thy feet we cast
Our burdens now.
The yoke of Love we take; O, bind us fast!
To Thee we bow.
Thou art our Master! through our earthly home
No guide but Thee!
And when Thy kingdom unto us shall come,
Our servant be!
