Representative Text

1 I give my heart to Thee, O blessed Saviour,
Heavy and burdened with its load of sin;
Smile Thou upon me with Thy loving favor,
Hear and forgive me, make me pure within.

O take my heart,
Saviour divine;
Guard it from evil,
Make it wholly Thine.

2 I give my heart to Thee, O Lord, forever,
Weary with strivings, filled with anxious care;
Help me to cling to Thee with new endeavor,
Help me, dear Lord, my daily cross to bear. [Refrain]

3 I give my heart to Thee, O Jesus, take it,
Cleanse it from sin, Thy precious blood apply;
Grant that Thy Spirit’s pow’r may melt and break it,
Teach it to serve Thee while the days go by. [Refrain]
