1. Make me a captive, Lord, And then I shall be free; Force me to render up my sword, And I shall conqueror be. 2. I sink in life's alarms When by myself I stand; Imprison me within Thine arms, And strong shall be my hand. 3. My heart is weak and poor Until its master finds; It has no spring of action sure, It varies with the wind. 4. It cannot freely move Till Thou hast wrought its chain; Enslave it with Thy matchless love, And deathless it shall reign.
