1 I heard the dear Redeemer say,
In tones of love divine,
“I gave myself, O man, for thee,
And wilt thou not be mine?”

Only thine, only thine,
My life to thee I give;
Only thine, only thine,
For thee alone to live.

2 I see the Man of Sorrows bow
And die upon the cross;
‘Twas all for me, O Lord, I know,
And all thy love confess. [Refrain]

3 For me he rose and intercedes
Upon his Father’s throne;
And lo, his tender mercy pleads
To make me all his own. [Refrain]

4 And shall my poor divided heart
Cling to the world and thee?
Nay, Lord, take all, and not a part,
All thine I’ll ever be. [Refrain]

5 O Lord, I bow to reason’s claim,
Here on thy altar lie
A sacrifice in Jesus’ name,
To all this world I die. [Refrain]
