1 Accept my grateful praises,
O Jesus Christ, my Lord,
For ev’ry precious promise
I find within Thy word!
What service can I render?
What promise can I make,
For all Thou hast accomplish’d
And suffer’d for my sake?
For trusting only in Thy strength,
Which Thou has pledg’d to me,
My willing heart would thus respond,
And pledge itself to Thee.
2 Upon Thy strength depending,
I give my promise true,
Whatever Thou wouldst have me
That will I strive to do!
In prayer I’ll seek Thee daily,
And read Thy holy word;
And make my life’s endeavor
To follow Thee, dear Lord. [Refrain]
3 Wherever duty calls me,
There, Saviour, will I be:
I’ll join with Thy disciples,
And testify for Thee.
For Thy dear Church I’ll labor,
My willing service give;
The Church my Saviour died for,
For her I’ll gladly live! [Refrain]
