Not I, But Thee in Me

Anything I e'er do,
Lest it be for naught,
Glorify Thee, O my Lord,
Be it word or thought.

May my lowly service
To others be, my Lord,
Of the sweetest nature,
And of the softest word.

Let Kindness be my sister;
Compassion be my friend;
Mercy be my brother,
And Patience to me lend.

Yet, if I can perform
One simple charity,
It cannot be my own;
Not I, but Thee in me.
