To Glorify Thee

Representative Text

1. Oh, may my life be to Thy praise, O Father,
In all I do may Thou be magnified;
Thou chosest me before the world’s foundation,
Thine own to be, that Thou be glorified.

Refrain:
To glorify Thee, this is my plea;
Work out Thy purpose, Thy plan for me;
A yielded vessel, Thine own to be,
Thy praise and glory, to live for Thee.

2. Oh, may my life be to Thy praise, O Savior,
Thy finished work in all its glory see;
And, precious thought, that Thou entrusteth to me
This task to praise and glorify Thee.

3. Oh, may my life be to Thy praise, O Spirit,
This temple fit, empow’red, and yielded be,
That in Thy strength my life may glorify Thee
In life or death, whate’er Thou hast for me.
