Representative Text

1 Let him to whom we now belong
his sovereign right assert,
and take up every thankful song

3 We come in deep humility

and own it perfect liberty
to serve the Lord we love.

and let us to thy glory live
and in thy cause expire.

5 Our souls and bodies we resign;
with joy we render thee
our all, no longer ours, but Thine,
to all eternity.
