1. O God, my powers are Thine;
So may my service be;
Grant me the grace of love divine
To serve Thee steadfastly.

2. Thy sovereign right I own,
I seek Thy will and way;
All Thy commands to me make known,
That I may all obey.

3. Immortal souls to guard
Assist me by Thy grace;
That I present each one, O Lord,
Perfect before Thy face.

4. Thy holy Word my task
To love and teach and live,
That to inquiring souls that ask,
Thy answer I may give.

5. Here, Lord, I humbly bring
Both self and class to Thee;
Accept the offering, O my King,
And keep eternally.
