610. Living for Jesus

1 Living for Jesus a life that is true,
striving to please him in all that I do;
yielding allegiance, glad-hearted and free,
this is the pathway of blessing for me.

[Refrain:]
O Jesus, Lord and Savior,
I give myself to thee;
for thou, in thy atonement,
didst give thyself for me;
I own no other master,
my heart shall be thy throne;
my life I give, henceforth to live,
O Christ, for thee alone.

2 Living for Jesus who died in my place,
bearing on Calvary my sin and disgrace;
such love constrains me to answer his call,
follow his leading, and give him my all. [Refrain]

3 Living for Jesus through earth's little while,
my dearest treasure--the light of his smile;
seeking the lost ones he died to redeem,
bringing the weary to find rest in him. [Refrain]
