May Christ be seen in me, O Lord,
Hear Thou my earnest plea;
O take me, fill me, use me, Lord,
Till Christ be seen in me. —DeHoff
(c)1941, Percy B. Crawford

It begins something like this:
O humbly may I serve Thee Lord
with all that I possess
I lay aside my sinful self
And claim Thy righteousness
...
My only plea, to live for Thee
And magnify Thy Son
May Christ be seen in me...

I don't know where you can find it on line but I do have it in 2 of my books.  It looks like it was copyright in 1941 by Percy B. Crawford and renewal was in 1969 by Evelyn B. Lykens.  Assigned to Singspiration, Inc.  Hope that helps.

Mary Lou, I have been searching for this song for some time.  Could you please give the titles and publishing info of the books that contain it ?  Thank you so  much.

Is it in the Baptist hymnal?

May Christ Be Seen in Me / Percy Crawford

O Lord, I give myself to Thee, and all that I possess;
I lay aside my sinful pride and claim Thy righteousness,
My will lies shattered at Thy feet, I pray Thy will be done,
My only plea to live for Thee and magnify Thy Son.

May Christ be seen in me, O Lord,
Hear Thou my earnest plea;
O take me, fill me, use me, Lord,
Till Christ be seen in me.

O may I count all gain but loss, save as to Thee 'tis gain;
Let me not shun the promised cross, nor shirk to suffer pain,
Then lead me, Lord, up Calv'ry's hill, forth to the cross with Thee,
And there pour out my life with God, As Thou didst Lord for me.

May Christ be seen in me, O Lord,
Hear Thou my earnest plea;
O take me, fill me, use me, Lord,
Till Christ be seen in me.

O humbly may I serve Thee, Lord, as in Thy will I tread;
And may I live anew in Christ, as risen from the dead.
Then closely walking by Thy side, may love flow out thro' me,
That those whom Thou shalt lead my way may, too, find life in Thee.

May Christ be seen in me, O Lord,
Hear Thou my earnest plea;
O take me, fill me, use me, Lord,
Till Christ be seen in me.
