Representative Text

1 Lord, take my all, -
The gift is small
For Thee, for Thee;
What hast Thou done,
O blessed One,
For me, for me!
What hast Thou done,
O blessed One,
For me, for me!

2 Dare I refuse
My life to use
For Thee, for Thee;
Who shed Thy blood,
A cleansing flood,
For me, for me?
Who shed Thy blood,
A cleansing flood,
For me, for me?

3 Would I had more,
Earth’s richest store,
For Thee, for Thee;
Thy love has met
A boundless debt,
For me, for me;
Thy love has met
A boundless debt,
For me, for me.

4 By grace divine,
Seal what is mine
For Thee, for Thee;
Who suffered loss,
And bore the cross,
For me, for me;
Who suffered loss,
And bore the cross,
For me, for me.

5 Lord, here am I,
To live or die
For Thee, for Thee;
Thy sacrifice
Has paid the price
For me, for me;
Thy sacrifice
Has paid the price
For me, for me.
