Lyrics

These hands of mine I bring Thee, Lord,
Fill them with humblest work for Thee;
These feet, oh guide them in the paths
That Thou shalt choose for them and me.

Refrain

Accept my service, Lord!
Accept this heart of mine.
Lo! at Thy feet, I humbly pray,
Thou’lt make me only Thine.

These eyes to scan Thy handiwork,
And read the love reflected there;
These ears to hear the message sweet
Which whispers of the Father’s care.

Refrain

These lips, dear Master, do I bring
For Thee to touch and tuneful make;
My thoughts, Lord, consecrate e’en these
To loving service for Thy sake.

Refrain

Thus heart and soul, dear Lord, I bring,
And humbly pray Thee to renew
With each day’s needs the strength and grace,
To render faithful service true.
