Lyrics

I have made my choice
To follow Christ each day,
I am Thine for service, Lord;
Tho’ I sometimes falter on the thorny way,
I am Thine for service, Lord.

Refrain

Thine for service when the days are drear,
Thine for service when the skies are clear;
Yes, Thine for service thro’ the coming years,
I am Thine for service, Lord.

Let me idle not the precious hours away,
I am Thine for service, Lord;
As Thy voice shall bid me, I will go or stay,
I am Thine for service, Lord.

Refrain

I will never ask Thee How,
Or Where, or Why?
For I’ve cast my lot with Thee
Till the glory gates shall open by and by,
With a Welcome home for me.

Refrain

I am Thine for service till the last glad hour
Shall have passed on earth from me;
And I wake to service of a greater power,
Thro’ a glad eternity.
