Since Jesus gave His life for me,
Should I not give Him mine?
I’m consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
I shall be wholly Thine.
My life, O Lord, I give to Thee,
My talents, time and all;
I’ll serve Thee, Lord, Thine own to be,
I’ll hear Thy faintest call.
I care not where my Lord directs,
His purpose I’ll fulfill;
I know He every one protects
Who does His holy will.
Tho’ He may call across the sea,
With Jesus I will go,
And tell the lost of love so free,
Till all His power may know.
My home and friends are dear to me,
Yet He is dearer still;
In my affections first He’ll be,
And first His righteous will.
My all, O Lord, to Thee I’ll give,
Accept it as Thine own;
For Thee, dear Lord, I’ll ever live,
My heart shall be Thy throne.
