Complete in Thee



Complete in Thee! no work of mine
Could take, dear Lord, the place of Thine;
Thy blood hath pardon bought for me,
And now I stand complete in Thee.

Refrain:
Yea, justified! O blessed thought!
And sanctified! Salvation wrought!
Thy blood hath pardon bought for me,
And glorified, I too, shall be!

Complete in Thee - each want supplied,
And no good thing to me denied;
Since Thou my portion, Lord, wilt be,
I ask no more, complete in Thee.

Complete in Thee! No more shall sin,
Thy grace hath conquered, reign within.
Thy voice shall bid the temptor flee,
And I shall stand complete in Thee.

Dear Saviour! when before Thy bar
All tribes and tongues assembled are,
Among Thy chosen I shall be,
At Thy right hand, complete in Thee.

Author, Aaron R. Wolfe 1821-1902
Refrain, James M. Gray 1851-1935

Thank you for posting this lovely hymn! I'd never heard it before and the words were very encouraging.

Tammy, I recently found your blog and I am delighted. Your writing just resonates with me over and over again. I will be linking to you on my own blog. I find it very interesting that you have Mennonite neighbors. I was raised Mennonite and so I was taught from little on up some vital truths, but I am continuing to discover more and more about God. I am always soo inspired to read about the journey that others are on in the area of starting to cover their heads and in modest dress. It inspires me and fills me with wonder at the goodness of God. Thanks for your inspiring blog.

This hymn is a perfect example of why I love the old hymns. So much doctrine, so much Bible put into a few lines. There is enough in that song to save someone from hell and to melt the heart of the backslider!

Oh Tammy, I love this song. Actually I went and downloaded a DC of his. He is super talented and using it for the Lord, which is what counts.
Thanks for posting it!
