My son, give unto me thy heart

My son, give unto me thy heart

Published in 3 hymnals

Full Text

1 My son give unto me thy heart!
Delight thou in my ways:
I will receive thee as thou art,
And fit thee for my praise.

2 Dear Lord, I give my heart to thee,
To thee I will resign;
Create a holy heart in me,
And let it be like thine.

3 Dear Father, let me be thine own;
And make me wise to know
The duties of a faithful son,
Who seeks thy will to do.

4 Subdue in me my base desires,
Since they disturb my peace,
And as they blessed will requires,
Seek for true holiness.

5 To whom but thee should I submit
With all my heart and mind;
When truly humbled at thy feet
The greatest rest I find.

6 To none but thee my gracious Lord
I trust myself to give;
But I will yield unto thy word,
By which my soul can live.
