Francis Bottome (May 26, 1823, Belper, Derbyshire, England, UK – June 29, 1894, Cornwall, England, UK)

Search me O God my actions try
And let my life appear
As seen by Thine all searching eye
To mine my ways make clear

Search all my sense and know my heart
Who only canst make known
And let the deep the hidden part
To me be fully shown

Throw light into the darkened cells
Where passions reign within
Quicken my conscience till it feels
The loathsomeness of sin

Search all my thoughts the secret springs
The motives that control
The chambers where polluted things
Hold empire o’er the soul

Search till Thy fiery glance hast cast
Its holy light thro’ all
And I by grace am brought at last
Before Thy face to fall

Thus prostrate I shall learn of Thee
What I now feebly prove
That God alone in Christ can be
Unutterable love
