Representative Text

1 Full consecration! heart and spirit yielded
In the calm rest of resurrection life;
Within the secret of God’s presence shielded
From care in service, and from harm of strife.

2 Full consecration! whither, Lord, Thou goest,
We, too, would follow, list’ning for Thy call;
The true, glad watchword of our hearts Thou knowest,
All, all for Christ, and Christ our all in all.

3 Full consecration! let us go forth bravely,
Bearing His cross who lived for us and died;
Taking grief calmly, making conquest gravely,
With the sweet quiet of the satisfied.

4 Thine, Lord, for ever! keep us, we implore Thee,
Yielded to Thee as risen from the dead;
Each in his priestly white to walk before Thee,
Thy consecration ever on his head.
