Lyrics

Take my heart, O loving Savior,
Only this have I to give,
Hear my willing consecration,
Thine, forever Thine, to live;
Lead Thou on, and I will follow,
Wheresoe’er my path may be,
Lord, I know that all sufficient
Is Thy promised grace to me.

Take my heart, O loving Savior,
Bend my will to Thy control;
Let me feel Thy presence nearer,
Blessèd refuge of my soul;
Thro’ this world of care and sorrow,
O ’tis joy to trust in Thee,
And to know that all sufficient,
Is Thy promised grace to me.
