VOLUNTARY SURRENDER

 

by Emma Curtis Hopkins

 

Here is my mind;
I spread it out before Thee.
Forgive Thou its foolishness and ignorance with Thy Bright Wisdom.

Here is my life impulsion;
I offer it to Thee.
Forgive Thou all its contrariness to Thee.

Here is my heart;
it is Thine only.
Forgive Thou its dissatisfactions;
forgive its restlessness.
Forgive its discouragements;
forgive its elations.
Forgive its hopes and its fears, its loves and its hates.

Here is my body;
I cast it down before Thee.
Forgive Thou its imperfections with Thy Perfection.

Forgive me altogether with Thyself.
So only can I be the life and inspiration of the five bold words of Truth — Hymns to the Eternal-glowing

Virgins with oil of healing and oil of illumination in their everlasting lamps.

  1. Thou art and there is none beside Thee, in Thine own Omnipresence, Omnipotence, Omniscience.
  2. I am Thine only and in Thee I live, move and have my being.
  3. I am Thine own Substance, Power and Light, and shed abroad Wisdom, Strength, Holiness from Thee.
  4. Thou art now working through me to will and to do that which ought to be done by me.
  5. I am forgiven and goverened by Thee alone, and I cannot sin, I cannot suffer for sin, nor fear sin, sickness, or death.
