Lost Lyrics - Self-renouncing love

You know when you are getting old when you start listening to Radio 4, losing your hair, waking up early and looking through The Salvation Army Song Book for lost lyrics....!

"A life of self-renouncing love is one of liberty..."


In service which thy love appoints
There are no bonds for me;
My secret heart is taught the truth
That makes thy children free:
A life of self-renouncing love
Is one of liberty.

Anna Laetitia Waring (1823-1910)
