and make it always thine,
that I from thee no more may stray,
no more from thee decline.
2 Before the cross of him who died,
behold, I prostrate fall;
let every sin be crucified,
and Christ be all in all.
3 Anoint me with thy heavenly grace,
and seal me for thine own;
that I may see thy glorious face,
and worship near thy throne.
4 Let every thought and work and word
to thee be ever given:
Then life shall be thy service, Lord,
and death the gate of heaven.
5 All glory to the Father be,
all glory to the Son,
all glory, Holy Ghost, to thee,
while endless ages run. Topics: Christian Initiation; The Fourth Sunday before Lent Year A; Sin; Self-offering; Proper 23 Year B; Proper 17 Year B; Discipleship; Devotion; Dedication of people; Commitment; Vocation Used With Tune: ST PETER
