Full Text

1 Here I lift my heart and hand,
Pledged to Thee, my Lord, I stand,
All the world I could but dross,
Glory only in Thy cross.

2 What have I to bring to Thee?
Naught but sin and misery;
What Thy love and power can tell?
Deep, immense, unsearchable.

3 Thro’ the year my life has been
Marked by waywardness and sin;
Yet Thou hast the wanderer blest,
Thro’ my Lord’s unrighteousness.

4 Now I come to Thee for light,
Guide and cheer in life’s dark night;
Now I rest upon Thy Word,
Dare to call Thee God and Lord.
