Representative Text

1 Into Thy service, Lord, Thou callest me;
Faithful in all my work help me to be;
Emptied of self and sin, with only Christ within,
Aid me lost souls to win from sin to Thee.

2 Thou gav’st Thyself for me,Lord, Thou art mine;
I give myself to Thee, Savior divine;
Now for Thine own name’s sake, I full surrender make;
All I possess now take, all, all is Thine.

3 That I Thy will may do, show me the way;
For this my strength renew from day to day;
This is my earnest plea, Thine wholly, Lord, to be,
Serve ever only Thee, and Thee obey.
