320. I Lift My Heart to Thee

1. I lift my heart to Thee, Savior divine,
For Thou art all to me, and I am Thine.
Is there on earth a closer bond than this,
That "My Beloved's mine, and I am His?"

2. To Thee, Thou bleeding Lamb, I all things owe;
All that I have and am, and all I know.
All that I have is now no longer mine,
And I am not mine own;--Lord, I am Thine.

3. How can I, Lord, withhold life's brightest hour
From Thee; or gathered gold, or any pow'r?
Why should I keep one precious thing from Thee,
When Thou hast giv'n Thine own dear self for me?
