Go Deeper

Go deeper into me, Lord Jesus;
Yes, deeper every day,
Till Thou hast conquered me, Lord Jesus;
Go deeper all the way.

Go deeper into me, Lord Jesus;
Search all the secret springs
Of thought and action, words and feelings,
Of great and little things.

Go deeper into me, Lord Jesus,
Cleanse all the hidden part,
Where pride, or touchiness, or temper,
May lurk within my heart.

Go deeper into me, Lord Jesus,
Till Thou canst really rise,
Out of the depths of this my being,
Through Thy great Sacrifice.

As Thou dost rise in me, Lord Jesus,
The life shall be thine own,
Till o’er my humbled, broken spirit
Thou reignest on Thy throne.

– E. E. B. Rogers

“We get no deeper into Christ than we allow him to get into us.”
