1. I lift my heart to Thee, Savior divine,
For Thou art all to me, and I am Thine.
Is there on earth a closer bond than this,
That "My Beloved's mine, and I am His?"

2. To Thee, Thou bleeding Lamb, I all things owe;
All that I have and am, and all I know.
All that I have is now no longer mine,
And I am not mine own;--Lord, I am Thine.

3. How can I, Lord, withhold life's brightest hour
From Thee; or gathered gold, or any pow'r?
Why should I keep one precious thing from Thee,
When Thou hast giv'n Thine own dear self for me?

It is from the Stray Leaves, and is in several hymnbooks, including the Scottish Evangelical Union Hymnal, 1878; Horder's Congregational Hymns, 1884, and many others.
