5928. Saved to Serve

1. To daily die to self and sin, and daily to receive
New life from Thee, I pray, O Lord, and more like Thee to live.
O saved to serve! by Jesus’ blood from sin and self made free,
To praise His name, to do His will, throughout eternity.

2. To daily die to all things past, by spirit, prayer, and word,
May I increase in faith and deed unto Thy stature, Lord.
O saved to serve! the field is wide; what I can do is small;
With joyful heart and hand, O Lord, I give to Thee my all.

3. Though dark the way, though long the strife, I through the Spirit’s might
Shall strive for Thee, Thy kingdom’s weal, and for eternal right;
Then saved to serve! in Heav’n’s bright sphere I shall with angels sing,
And saved by grace behold Thy face, my Savior, Lord and King.
