Representative Text

1 Christ has loved thee faithfully—
Much, oh, much, He did for thee;
From His love turn not away,
Give thyself to God today.

Refrain:
Give thyself to God today,
Give thyself to God today;
Do not wait till some tomorrow—
Time is not for thee to borrow;
Sin and sorrow fling away,
Give thyself to God today.

2 Give thyself to God today,
Nothing good comes of delay;
Lest the wish itself depart,
Give to God today thine heart. [Refrain]

3 Do not slight the worthiest goal;
What could compensate the soul,
If in folly, sin and strife,
Thou shouldst miss eternal life. [Refrain]
