197. Consecration

1 Since Jesus gave His life for me,
Should I not give Him mine?
I’m consecrated, Lord, to Thee,
I shall be wholly Thine.

Refrain:
My life, O Lord, I give to Thee,
My talents, time, and all;
I’ll serve Thee, Lord, Thine own to be,
I’ll hear Thy faintest call.

2 I care not where my Lord directs,
His purpose I’ll fulfill;
I know He everyone protects
Who does His holy will. [Refrain]

3 Though He may call across the sea,
With Jesus I will go;
And tell the lost of love so free,
Till all His pow’r may know. [Refrain]

4 My home and friends are dear to me,
Yet He is dearer still;
In my affections first He’ll be,
And first His righteous will. [Refrain]

5 My all, O Lord, to Thee I’ll give,
Accept it as Thine own;
For Thee alone I’ll ever live,
My heart shall be Thy throne. [Refrain]
