In glad obedience to Thy call

Representative Text

1 In glad obedience to Thy call,
We seek Thee, gracious Lord;
To know Thy will, to serve Thy cause,
Our eager hearts are stirred;
Speak to us by Thy Spirit,
As to Thy seers of old;
May we from Thee true wisdom gain
Our willing minds to mold.

2 The place where Thou wouldst have us serve,
The work that we should do
To build the kingdom of Thy Son,
Bring clearly to our view;
Then may our inmost spirit
Respond unto Thy will,
And as we walk where Thou dost guide
O be Thou with us still.

3 The life and pow’rs Thou gavest us,
We dedicate today;
The gift we on the altar place
Accept, O Lord, we pray;
And when the life we give Thee
Its earthly task has done,
Receive and crown us, Lord, within
The kingdom Christ has won.
