2 Corinthians 5:20
"Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did
beseech you by us:  we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God."

          How I praise Thee, precious Savior,
          That Thy love laid hold of me;
          Thou hast saved and cleansed and filled me
          That I might Thy channel be.

            Chorus
            Channels only, blessed Master,
            But with all Thy wondrous power
            Flowing thro' us, Thou canst use us
            Ev'ry day and every hour.

          Emptied that Thou shouldest fill me,
          A clean vessel in Thy hand;
          With no pow'r but as Thou givest
          Graciously with each command.

            Chorus
            Channels only, blessed Master,
            But with all Thy wondrous power
            Flowing thro' us, Thou canst use us
            Ev'ry day and every hour.

          Witnessing Thy pow'r to save me,
          Setting free from self and sin;
          Thou who boughtest to possess me,
          In Thy fullness, Lord, come in.

            Chorus
            Channels only, blessed Master,
            But with all Thy wondrous power
            Flowing thro' us, Thou canst use us
            Ev'ry day and every hour.

          Jesus, fill now with Thy Spirit
          Hearts that full surrender know;
          That the streams of living water
          From our inner self may flow.

            Chorus
            Channels only, blessed Master,
            But with all Thy wondrous power
            Flowing thro' us, Thou canst use us
            Ev'ry day and every hour.
