Representative Text

1 Jesus, I bring to thee,
Humbly and trustingly,
All of my heart, all of my heart;
Fill it with love divine,
All of its dross refine,
Seal it, and make it thine
In ev'ry part.

2 O precious Christ, come in,
Wash me from all my sin,
Make pure my soul, make pure my soul,
Cleanse it from ev'ry stain;
Let not a spot remain,
At any cost of pain,
O! make me whole.

3 Take, Jesus, all my pow'rs,
My moments and my hours,
And let them be, and let them be,
Used henceforth but for thee,
In faithful ministry,
Constantly, lovingly,
Only for thee.
