9140. My Gift To Jesus

1 Take my heart and let it be
Cleansed from all impurity;
Fill it then with love divine,
Make it, O my Lord, like Thine.
Lord, I give to Thee my will,
Speak the word, "Oh peace, be still";
There shall be no more a strife
With Thy will, O Christ, my life.

Refrain:
Take my heart and let it be
Cleansed from all impurity;
Fill it, too, with love divine;
Make it, O my Lord, like Thine.

2 Lead me, Lord, where Thou shalt choose;
Nevermore will I refuse
Thee the right to reign within,
O my Savior, from all sin.
All is on the altar laid;
And my faith on Thee is stayed;
Now, O Lord, I wait the fire,
Burning every base desire. [Refrain]

3 Now I feel the blood applied;
Let me, Christ, in Thee abide;
Walk with me from day to day;
Lead me, Savior, all the way.
Savior, this my gift to Thee;
Greater Thine, O Lord, to me—
Thy rich grace in me to dwell,
This assurance, "All is well." [Refrain]
