Representative Text

1 I bring my heart to Thee,
My ills I can not count,
That it may pure and cleansèd be
In Thy once opened fount.

I will no more delay,
Before Thy throne I fall,
And at Thy precious feet I lay
My heart, my life, to Thee.

2 I give my life to Thee,
Lord, use it as Thou wilt;
The life for which on Calvary
Thy precious blood was spilt. [Refrain]

3 If I have aught withheld,
I give it now, my Lord,
With Thee I am by love impelled
To be in sweet accord. [Refrain]
