61. A Living Sacrifice

1 I love the Christ, the Son of God,
Who died that I might live;
I would my gratitude express,
A gift unto Him give.

Refrain:
My gift is small, it is my all,
Accept it, Lord, I pray;
Let self be slain, let Jesus reign
Within my heart alway.

2 I fail to find a sacrifice,
Or fitting gift to bring;
Earth’s treasures have too little worth
To offer to my King. [Refrain]

3 No gift, however grand or great,
Could pay the debt I owe;
I bring myself, my life, my all,
A living gift bestow. [Refrain]

4 My members all I gladly yield
For service, Lord, to Thee;
To bear the blessed gospel light,
That others Christ may see. [Refrain]
